National Student Survey (NSS)

The University of Chichester takes feedback from its students very seriously and works hard to maintain the high quality of its courses. Over the last three years, we have been overwhelmed by the very positive rating that our graduating students have given to their experience at the University through the NSS and our own internal surveys.

We certainly appreciate the care taken by our students in completing the survey, in identifying our successes and areas for improvement.

We are working with the Students' Union to make this a real opportunity for dialogue between the University and its students.

The National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual independent survey of graduating students, which asks students to rate and comment upon their undergraduate experience as it nears completion.

The survey is undertaken for the government by the polling firm, Ipsos Mori, and the results for each university are published, ordered by subjects.
