The National Student Survey 2017


The National Student Survey (NSS) 2017 is now open to graduating students. All final year students in the Department of Statistics are very much encouraged to complete the survey.

NSS is a national survey of the opinions of graduating students at Universities across the United Kingdom. Students are asked to express their levels of satisfaction about various aspects of their course. The survey is undertaken by Ipsos MORI. They will email you with details on how to complete the survey and with a personalised web link. Alternatively, you can complete the survey by going directly to or following the link at (which also has some further information).

We hope you will participate: it’s very important to the University and the Statistics Department to get your feedback, which is used to improve the course for future students, and helps prospective students make choices between different courses and universities. However if you choose not to participate then we recommend you officially opt out, for example by following the link from the FAQ page on the survey site. This will prevent Ipsos MORI contacting you about the survey later.

The survey opened on Monday and closes on 30th April 2017. Your views will be passed to the Department by Ipsos MORI in an anonymised form.

For every student that completes the NSS, the Department of Statistics will donate £3 to the Warwick Cancer Research Centre:

 Additionally, students completing the survey online before 3rdMarch 2017, will have a £5 credit will be applied to their Eating at Warwick card.
