What is the NSS?

The NSS is a nationally recognised annual survey of mostly final year undergraduates in the UK. The survey provides students with an opportunity to give their honest opinions on what they liked about their time on their course at Empire College London as well as things that they feel could have been improved.

The survey is administered by Ipsos MORI, an independent market research agency, so answers remain anonymous at all times.

Why should I take part?

  • The NSS provides you with the opportunity to provide honest feedback on your student experience;
  • Your feedback will be used to improve the student experience at Empire College London;
  • The results are taken very seriously and inform the quality assurance system with regards to teaching quality;
  • Results are used by prospective students, their families and advisors to make decisions on what and where to study.

Be heard at Empire College London.

What happens with the results?

The NSS results are made publicly available to help prospective students, their families and advisors make informed decisions of where and what to study. Institutions and supporting students’ unions also use the data to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses to bring about change and enhancements to improve the learning experience for future generations of students. Data from previous surveys are available on Discover Uni.

How do I complete it?

During January 2021 eligible students will be sent an invitation email to complete the survey by Ipsos MORI. Non-respondents may be contacted by telephone. You can complete the NSS online or via a mobile device at at any time from 11 January 2021 to 30 April 2021. As soon as you have completed the survey, you will not be contacted further by Ipsos MORI. You may opt-out of the survey at any point during the fieldwork.
