National Student Survey

The National Student Survey is a nationally recognised annual survey of mostly final year undergraduates in the UK. The survey provides students with an invaluable opportunity to give their opinions on what they liked about their time at the University of Birmingham as well as things that they felt could have been improved. 

The NSS includes questions, relating to the following aspects of the student learning experience: teaching, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation, learning resources, personal development, overall satisfaction, and the students’ union.
