Final year undergraduates are asked to rate their experience at Imperial as the 2019 National Student Survey launches.

The survey, which is open until 30 April 2019, invites students to assess the College on areas such as academic support, learning resources and assessment and feedback.

Professor Simone Buitendijk, Vice-Provost (Education) said: "It's important that final year students take this opportunity to reflect on their experience at Imperial. The College needs this information if it is to deliver the world-class experience all our students deserve. We’ve recently identified a number of actions we can take to respond to the feedback from the NSS 2018 and are working to implement these.

“In 2017 we launched a Learning and Teaching Strategy that will radically improve the student experience. Alongside the Strategy, NSS results have helped us identify the areas in which Imperial is a world-leader, and where can and will do better in future."

The results of the survey, which are published later in the year, help inform key education-focused developments. Each department creates an action plan aimed at enhancing areas such as teaching and student support as part of the College’s strategic commitment to enriching the student experience.

Imperial College Union also produces a formal response to the survey’s results, to help the College and Union work together on improvements.

Alejandro Luy, Imperial College Union’s Deputy President (Education), said: “The NSS is the College’s opportunity to gain an insight from final year undergraduates on their learning experience. Each year Imperial College Union analyses the data and produces the NSS Response which outlines several evidence-based recommended actions to improve weaker areas of the student academic experience.

"The Union’s recommended actions are formed from an in-depth analysis of the free-text comments, which indicate practices which lead to higher student satisfaction, as well as the experience of the Academic Representation Network. This year Imperial’s NSS includes new questions covering student wellbeing services and course delivery methods which will allow College to gauge the impact of the Student Support Strategy as well as the Learning and Teaching Strategy.”

Eligible students can complete the survey on the NSS website.
