Calling all 3rd years: Have you taken the NSS yet?

In General

What is the NSS?

If you’re a third year student, you probably can’t go anywhere without seeing or hearing about the National Student Survey, or NSS.

The NSS is a nationwide census of nearly half a million students which gathers feedback on your time at university. This information is then used to identify what went well and what could be improved.

The survey will soon be entering its next stage and contacting students by telephone, so if you haven’t yet taken the survey and want to avoid getting hassled, make sure you head over to the National Student Survey 2016Read the rest
