National Student Survey 2007

Summary

The National Student Survey (NSS) forms part of our revised Quality Assurance Framework (QAF) and surveys final year undergraduates in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and some institutions in Scotland. HEFCE commissioned Paula Surridge at the University of Bristol to conduct research into the third NSS and identify changes between the years of results.

The report focuses on the student, institutional and course characteristics of the results, as Paula Surridge's research report on the first NSS did. In addition, there are three summary reports focusing on the part-time students, non-traditional students and institutional effects.
