Blog: Win big – fill out the National Student Survey now

Author Ziyad Azam is a 5th year Medical student at the University of Liverpool.

More than 70% of final year students filled out the National Student Survey (NSS) last year, with 407 institutions taking part. In total, nearly 4 million students have completed the survey. But what even is it? Why should I fill it out?

It’s an incredibly short survey, with only 27 core questions that will take less than 10 minutes to fill out. It is essentially the master of all feedback – it gives each final year student a voice to assess, criticise and praise our courses and university. Thanks to previous years, the NSS has resulted in the construction of the 502 building, cheaper printing costs and the implementation of the lecture capture system.

The University will donate £1 to the four chosen charities for each survey filled out, so your excuses are running out. The chosen charities are MOWLL, Revitalise, Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation and Sahir House.

If you needed a more selfish incentive to fill out the National Student Survey, then you’re in luck. The University is also offering 12 prizes over 12 weeks that include Solo3 Beats headphones, Bose speakers, hundreds of pounds in vouchers and gaming consoles.

The survey is open until Thursday 30 April. Just head over to the NSS website here and you’re good to go. Don’t forget to add your username to be entered into the draw for those exceptional prizes!
