The National Student Survey


The National Student Survey (NSS) is a nationally recognised annual survey of final year undergraduates in the UK. If you are a final year undergraduate student, this is an invaluable opportunity for you to provide your honest opinions on what you liked about your time at the University of Birmingham as well as how you feel we could improve the student experience. 

NSS 2017 has now ended - NSS next takes place in spring 2018.
