The National Student Survey (or NSS) goes out to all final year students in the UK. It's not spam and is actually quite important!  It takes about 10 minutes or so, and asks questions about how you find the course and whether you’ve had enough help and support while you’ve been studying.

Despite all the promotional stuff you’ll probably get sent by Registry and others, the survey is by students, for students.  It’s run by the NUS and is looking to gather the opinions of everyone at Uni.

Yan and I from the SU have sat on a number of meetings regarding the NSS and we've noticed that the University take it very seriously, and do listen to the feedback they get.  The results also get published on the web for anyone interested in studying here, and it plays a part in the league tables for your respective courses. It's a good chance to give your views on what you liked or disliked about your overall experience here at St. George's, and if you don't feel strongly either way, then it's equally as important that they hear that too!

There are incentives to take part.  Everyone who does the survey online can pick up a £5 voucher from the Student Centre to spend in the School Shop, Bookshop or Bar.  There’s also a prize draw running for one of four iPod nanos or a ‘VIP’ Graduation Package that pays for your tickets, gown hire, photos and other free graduation perks.

If you haven’t got the email from them, don’t worry, you can log straight onto the survey website at

The sooner you do it, the less you'll be pestered about it by the NSS information gathering company Ipsos-MORI!
