Please watch the below video for everything you need to know about the NSS:
The NSS is your opportunity to reflect on your student experience at the University and is a great way to help prospective students to make the right choices of where and what to study too.
Find out more about how your feedback has made a difference for the 2019/20 academic year.
The NSS is an annual survey that gives you the opportunity to reflect on your student experience at Manchester Metropolitan and provide feedback about your course.
The survey gathers information from the only people who know what it is like to study on your course, you and your fellow students!
Alongside our other forms of student feedback, the NSS will help inform the future student learning experience and will help prospective students make the right choices of where and what to study.
The survey can be accessed via the National Student Survey website on any device (including mobile).
The NSS is run across all publicly funded Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, as well as all Alternative Providers (APs) in England, with specific course designation for new students. All students studying on courses leading to undergraduate credits or qualifications, which are longer than 1-year full-time study or its part-time equivalent, will be surveyed in their final year of study.
Students on more flexible part-time programmes (whose final-year cannot be easily predicted) will normally be surveyed during their fourth year of study. Students who have withdrawn from study during their final-year will be included in the survey as their feedback is equally valuable. Unless otherwise removed, students who have repeated a year or have changed their course arrangements, but were originally expected to graduate in 2020, will be surveyed in the current year. Students who were already surveyed in 2019 will not be surveyed in 2020.
You may receive an invitation to participate in the survey even though you are not in your final-year. We would urge you to participate in the survey if you receive an invitation to do so, as this will represent your only opportunity to complete the NSS.
You can find more information about eligibility on the NSS website.
The survey and prize draw is conducted independently by Ipsos MORI (an independent research company in the UK) and all their research is conducted in compliance with data protection legislation.
Your responses to the survey are strictly confidential and will be anonymised before they are made available to Manchester Metropolitan.
The NSS results are made available through the Discover Uni website, which is designed to help prospective students make the important decision of where and what to study.
These results are also used by the University to help us to develop and improve the academic experience for future students.
The NSS is conducted by Ipsos MORI (an independent research company), who will be contacting eligible students throughout the campaign to invite them to complete the survey.
All students are able to opt-out of the survey from Ipsos MORI if they wish. Please visit the survey website if you wish to opt-out. If you decide to take part in the survey or opt-out, no further contact will be made by Ipsos MORI.
The University will also contact you to remind you to complete the survey. We are not informed about who has or has not taken part. Please contact email@example.com if you do not want to receive NSS emails from the University.
The Manchester Metropolitan NSS prize draw is now closed.
The prize draw is administered by Ipsos MORI and winners will be notified by email on Friday 20 March 2020.
