  • Shape the future at Oxford Brookes

    Thank you to our students who participated in the National Student Survey (NSS) 2018.
    The survey is now closed.
    Details of the NSS 2019 will be published in due course.

  • What is the NSS?

    The NSS is a nationally recognised annual survey of mostly final year undergraduates in the UK. The survey provides students with an opportunity to give their honest opinions on what they liked about their time on their course as well as things that could have been improved.

    The survey is administered by Ipsos MORI, an independent market research agency, so responses remain anonymous at all times.

    Why should I take part?

    • The NSS provides you with the opportunity to provide honest feedback on your student experience
    • Your feedback will be used to improve the student experience at Oxford Brookes
    • The results are taken very seriously and inform the quality assurance system with regards to teaching quality
    • Results are used by prospective students, their families and advisors to make decisions on what and where to study.

    What happens with the results?

    The NSS results are made publicly available to help prospective students, their families and advisors make informed decisions of where and what to study. Institutions and students’ unions also use the data to identify areas of strengths and weaknesses to bring about change and enhancements to improve the learning experience for future generations of students. 

  • Oxford Brookes has been participating in the NSS since its inception in 2005. As a result of listening to what former students had to say, a number of changes have been made including:

    • We’ve spent £2m on the ‘Print Anywhere’ project so you can print from your own device
    • We’ve added new PCs to libraries, refectories and classrooms. And we’re investing in desktop screens which connect to your own device
    • £220m is being invested over ten years to improve our accommodation residences and campuses, including new learning spaces

    These are just a few examples and you can find more on our dedicated Your Voice, Your Brookes webpages.
