National Student Survey

What is NSS?

National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual survey giving final year undergraduate students the chance to share their views and experiences of studying at Chesterfield College.

The nationally-recognised survey asks students to reflect on their experiences across a variety of areas including teaching, learning opportunities, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources and overall satisfaction.

Why take the survey?

As NSS is independently run by Ipos MORI all of your responses will be completely anonymous and confidential, giving you the opportunity to be entirely honest about your experiences here at Chesterfield College.

This is your chance to have your say and be heard; sharing your views allows us to listen to your feedback and make any relevant and necessary changes. This will help us to improve our services for future students who choose to study their degree with us.

The collective results of the survey will also be made publicly available, allowing prospective students to get a good understanding of the college and make an informed decision about their next steps.

The survey takes no longer than 10 minutes from start to finish and can be completed on a PC, smartphone or tablet.

How do I take part in the survey?

You’ll be automatically invited to take part in the survey via an email from Ipos MORI. Invitations will be sent out from 9 January and you’ll have until 30 April to complete the questions. The survey consists of a number of statements in which you’ll answer on a scale from ‘definitely agree’ to ‘definitely disagree’ or indicate where not applicable.

For those who do not take part in the survey you will be sent email reminders and may receive follow-up phone calls from Ipos MORI.

If you haven’t already please check your student email accounts, if eligible you should receive an invitation email from Ipsos Mori inviting you to take part in The 2017 National Student Survey.
