The National Student Survey

The National Student Survey (NSS) is a nationally recognised annual survey of final year undergraduates in the UK. 

The NSS is important to the University as final year students can reflect on their whole experience at Birmingham. You can help us to understand what is working for students, where our responses to feedback have improved the student experience, and where we need to make further enhancements. When the results are published in the summer, we read every comment and use the results to develop an action plan for each School and Department to ensure we are providing the best possible learning experience for all students.   The survey closes on 30 April 2019.
