The National Student Survey is an annual survey of nearly half a million final-year students from across the UK. The survey gathers opinions from students about their time in higher education and asks them to offer honest feedback on what it has been like to study on their course. It was introduced in 2005 to help inform the choices of prospective students and assist universities in enhancing student experience.
