Qualitative data on the quality and standards of learning and teaching

7.5.1
National Survey Information
Description

The National Student Survey (NSS) aims to generate feedback about the quality of students' courses, to help inform the choices of future applicants to higher education and to contribute to public accountability.

Results from the NSS will be an essential element of the revised quality assurance framework for higher education.

The first full-scale survey, including all publicly-funded higher education institutions in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, takes place in spring 2005. All final year undergraduate students at these institutions will be asked a series of questions about the quality of their courses.
