14 January sees the launch of the National Student Survey (NSS) 2013 at The University of Reading. It will give you a chance to have your say about what you liked and didn’t like about your time at the University of Reading, as well as things that you felt could have been improved.
Come to the marquee outside the Carrington Building between 10:00-15:00 to have your say about your time at the University of Reading. We have PCs where you can complete the NSS and there will be goodies available to those who complete the survey.
What is the NSS?
The NSS is an annual survey of final year undergraduates in England, Northern Ireland, Wales and some institutions in Scotland. It is a nationally recognised survey which gives students a way of providing honest feedback on their satisfaction with their course.
Why should I take part?
- The NSS provides you with the opportunity to provide honest feedback on your learning experience
- Your feedback will be used to improve the learning experience at the University of Reading
- The results are taken very seriously and inform the quality assurance system with regards to teaching quality
- Results are used by prospective students to make decisions on what and where to study
What happens with the results?
The NSS results are made publicly available to help prospective students make informed decisions of where and what to study. Institutions and students’ unions also use the data to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses to help bring about change and make improvements for future generations of students
How do I complete it?
During week one eligible students will be sent an invitation email to complete the survey by Ipsos MORI. Later, non-respondents may be contacted by post or ultimately by telephone. You can now complete the NSS online or via your smartphone at www.thestudentsurvey.com. You may opt out of the survey at any point during the fieldwork.
Don’t delay, have your say!
