The National Student Survey (NSS) has run since 2004. The UK higher education funding bodies, which own the survey, commissioned NatCen, the University of London’s Institute of Education and the Institute for Employment Studies to review the current purposes of the NSS and how effectively it meets them, and to make recommendations for the survey’s future shape.

The set of four reports comprises a summary report, literature review and the responses to surveys and discussions with students and stakeholders.

The UK funding bodies will consider the recommendations, and will ensure that any changes to the NSS are carefully tested and piloted before being implemented for the 2017 survey.
