The National Student Survey (NSS)

What is it?

The National Student Survey takes place annually at most Higher Education Institutes across the UK.

Whether you feel your time as a student at Anglia Ruskin University has been great, or you feel that some aspects could have been better, the NSS gives you a unique opportunity to speak up and make an impact in a meaningful way.

Why should I take part?

Your opinions matter and can lead to real change within Anglia Ruskin University. The survey only takes 10 minutes to complete, and you'll be helping prospective students make the right choice of where and what to study, as well as helping us improve our services to you.

How do I access the survey?

Go to and enter your Student ID number or short username or tap the "Complete your survey" tile on the ARU app.

Who can participate?

Mainly undergraduate students in their final year of study can take part in the NSS. If you are eligible to complete the survey, Ipsos-Mori will contact you by email to invite you to fill in the survey online. They may also contact you by phone at a later date if you have yet to complete the survey.

What's the theme this year?

This year, we're donating 2 to charity for each completed survey. You can make a difference just by taking a few minutes to have your say. The total amount raised will be split between the following organisations, as chosen by you via our Students' Union.

When is it?

This year's survey will open on Monday 5 February and close on Monday 30 April 2018.
