The National Student Survey (NSS) was first conducted in 2005 its original aims being to "inform the choices of future students" and "to contribute to public accountability by supporting external audits of institutions by the QAA" (pg 7). 21 items are grouped into six scales: teaching and learning (T and L); assessment and feedback (A and FB); academic support; organisation and management (O and M); learning resources; personal development. This report brings together key findings of three years of research using the NSS and will be useful to potential students and the wider sector but is aimed primarily at those working in HEIs.
