National Student Survey

The National Student Survey (NSS) gives you the opportunity to share your experiences of your time here at Kent – both what you liked and what you think could be improved.

NSS 2024 is now open!

Your feedback, including what you have (or haven't) liked about studying at Kent, is vitally important to the University and Kent Union, so we can continue to provide more of what you love and work on where we can improve.

So we're asking all eligible students to fill out the NSS.  

What is the NSS?

The NSS is the largest UK wide annual survey aimed at final year undergraduates in the UK.

The survey is anonymous and will help us understand what you think about studying here so we can improve our student experience at Kent.  

The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. However, we do recommend you take the time to consider your answers and reflect on your whole experience at Kent. The NSS is an influential survey and one of the best ways to get your voice heard and make a change at Kent.

Am I eligible?

In most cases, final year undergraduates are eligible to take the National Student Survey. Apprenticeship students may also be eligible to complete the NSS. 

If you are eligible, you will receive an email from Ipsos during the week starting 22 January 2024.

Why should I take part?

  • The NSS provides you with the opportunity to provide honest feedback on your student experience
  • Your opinions will be used to improve the student experience at the University of Kent
  • The feedback you submit is taken very seriously and informs the quality assurance system with regards to teaching quality
  • Results are published and used by prospective students, their families and advisors to make decisions on what and where to study through course comparison websites like Discover Uni

More information about the NSS is available at the OfS website.
