The National Student Survey 2020: How it affects you

What is it?
The National Student Survey (NSS) is an independent survey which takes place every year and gives eligible final year students the opportunity to have their say on their time at UCEN Manchester. 

Why is it important?
All student feedback received is extremely valuable to UCEN Manchester and helps us to improve the learning experience for current and future generations of students.

When will this happen?
All eligible students will receive an email from Ipsos MORI (the NSS organisers) by mid-January, inviting each student to complete their online survey by April.

What do I need to do?
Complete the online survey when you receive the email from Ipsos MORI. It should take no more than five minutes and you will be asked for some personal data to verify that you are eligible to take part.

What happens to the results?
The results are published on the national Unistats site and can be viewed by anyone interested in Higher Education. The results also receive media interest and are increasingly used by employers and others to assess the quality of higher education providers.

How will UCEN Manchester use the data?
UCEN Manchester values all student feedback and uses the NSS outcomes to improve the experience for future generations of students.

Can anyone help me complete the survey?
Your tutors will be able to help or advise if you have any questions when completing the survey, but they are not able to directly assist you once you have started the survey.
