We need your support

The National Student Survey is open to all eligible* final year students.

The more students we can get to take part in the National Student Survey, the more accurate an understanding we will have of our students’ experiences, which will help us ensure that the Sunderland experience continues to be life-changing.

Give us 5 minutes…

5mins600

This year we are promoting the message that it only takes 5 minutes to fill in the National Student Survey, with a video campaign created by six very talented students – the winner of which will be announced on Thursday, February 6. You can view all of these videos at:

The National Student Survey in brief

  • *Students invited to take part in the survey are principally in their final year of study on a higher education course of more than one year, so can be full or part time, but not top-up students.
  • The questionnaire includes 23 questions. Ipsos MORI, the independent body who administer the National Student Survey, calculate it takes on average of 5 minutes to complete the Survey.
  • The survey is based around JACS (Joint Academic Coding System) subject codes, and results are published where a JACS subject meets threshold i.e. at least 23 respondents complete the survey and at least 50% response rate is achieved. Only JACS subjects which meet the publication threshold are made available to the public, principally through the Unistats site and, since September 2012, have been included in Key Information Set (KIS) data, available on our website.
  • Key National Student Survey results are reported using a single ‘% agree’ figure (i.e. sum of % strongly agree and % agree), and this is also the format used on Unistats.

How can you help us increase our participation rate?

  • Encourage as many eligible students as possible to fill in the National Student Survey by ensuring that posters/literature/videos and digital signage is prominently displayed until April 30.
  • Starting in the week beginning Monday February 20 we will display weekly updated subject area statistics on how many final year students have already filled in the National Student Survey at the University. These will be available both on About US online, and on digital signage. If you would like these statistics for any presentations, etc, contact nss@sunderland.ac.uk. We will be happy to supply you with any relevant materials – but please note that these statistics should not be published outside of the University.
