The NSS Poster Competition
This February will see the launch of the 2015 National Student Survey (NSS) here at the University of Southampton. The NSS is an annual survey of (mostly final-year) undergraduates in the UK. The survey is designed to collect feedback from students about their university experience and make that information available to prospective students in order to better inform them of their university choices. To celebrate the launch of the promotional campaign, we are inviting students to create a poster design that will be used alongside the official NSS poster campaign!
Professor Alex Neill, (Pro Vice Chancellor of Education) explains that as well as reminding students to complete the survey, “the poster competition is a great way to get students involved in promoting the NSS to the whole of our community. The more student engagement we have with the NSS, the more information is available to help us improve the quality of the experience we provide for our students at Southampton.”
We recommend that the key things to communicate through your poster designs include advertising the survey (with special emphasis on appealing to final-year students), reminding students of the survey launch and where to fill out the survey (more information about this can be found on www.thestudentsurvey.com), as well as standing out from the crowd with an eye-catching design.
The competition winner will be announced on 2 February, just in time for the NSS launch on 9 February. The lucky winner of the University-run poster competition will not only have a great achievement to add to their CV, but will receive £250 prize money if their poster design is selected!
To enter the competition students must simply email their poster design submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. To be eligible for the competition you must have been a current student as of 1 May 2014. Both undergraduates and postgraduates are invited to get involved. The closing date for entries is 1 February 2015.
