National Student Survey (NSS)
Give your feedback through the National Student Survey (NSS) and you’ll help UWE Bristol to grow. It’s your chance to help shape the academic experiences of our future students.
What you need to know
Aimed mainly at final year undergraduates, the NSS is an annual voluntary survey that asks students about their course experiences. Run by Ipsos MORI, it's completely anonymous and should only take around 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
It has 27 core questions which you answer using a five-point scale. You'll be asked questions related to:
- teaching on your course
- learning opportunities
- assessment and feedback
- academic support
- organisation and management
- learning resources
- learning community
- student voice
- overall satisfaction.
You’ll also have the opportunity to make positive and negative comments in an open-answer question.

Building an even better university
We’re always striving to achieve more and build on our rank and reputation. For example, we have:
- been named 60th best University in the UK in the Complete University Guide 2018
- climbed to joint 52nd overall in the Guardian League Table
- been awarded a Silver rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF), meaning we significantly and consistently exceed the baseline quality threshold
- renewed our Athena SWAN Bronze Award – this acknowledges our success in the promotion of gender equality within Higher Education.
Developing our campuses
Through our campus development programme, we're investing in the latest facilities and learning environments, such as:
- a brand-new building for The Students' Union at UWE on Frenchay Campus
- a new £55m Bristol Business School building
- a new paediatric simulation suite.
Research and insight
From making an impact through our research to sharing expertise with the community, we've:
- shaped minimum wage policy
- tackled negative body image by working with politicians and industry
- continued to share insight from top business executives through our Bristol Distinguished Address Series.
We want you to have the best experience possible, so we've:
- increased out-of-hours mental health support
- organised our second annual UWE Bristol Student Conference to celebrate students' research and work
- given you access in Blackboard to all the modules you've previously taken alongside ones you're currently taking
- undertaken over 9,200 student work placements in the 2016/17 academic year.
