February 10th, 2016
The National Student Survey launched for final year undergraduates on Monday 1 February 2016. As of 1pm on Monday 8 February, completion rate stood at 13.3%. The top five responding departments (in terms of response rate) are as follows:
|Department||Response rate (%)|
|Contemporary Chinese Studies||43.2|
|Veterinary Medicine & Science||39.6|
|Chemical & Environmental Engineering||27.3|
Promoting the survey
All staff are asked to actively promote the NSS to final year student. As well as active promotion by University staff, lecture shout-outs by fellow students are commonly cited by students as one of the key reasons that they complete the survey.
Arranging lecture shout-outs for your students
The Students’ Union is offering training for student representatives to deliver lecture shout-outs, encouraging their peers to complete the survey.
If you would like your course or school representatives to carry out lecture shout-outs, you should first liaise directly with them. Training will be offered to directly to student reps in mid-February but the Students’ Union will not be coordinating lecture shout-out directly with Schools/student reps.
During the training, student representatives will be encouraged to coordinate with staff to agree a schedule of lecture shout-outs. If you would like to arrange lecture shout-outs, please coordinate with your student representatives.
Visit our NSS page on the Current Students section of the website for more background information about the survey.
