There are only 4 days left for students to fill in the 2015 National Student Survey! The deadline for the NSE-survey is on Sunday, 8 March. By participating, students provide valuable information to WUAS which is used to improve services at the university. It also gives insight on how Wittenborg compares with other institutes - students can give their opinion on all sorts of matters such as the availability and affordability of accommodation in the city where they are located.
Did we mention there are also awesome prizes to win from the NSE and exclusive tickets to a Wittenborg party for students who fill in in the questionnaire and inform the Front Desk via firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the NSE?
The National Student Survey (NSE: Nationale Studenten Enquête) is a nationwide survey researching students’ satisfaction with the higher education course they pursue in The Netherlands. Nearly all students in Dutch higher education are invited to participate every year.
How do students participate?
Students are asked to fill out a questionnaire on various aspects of their course programme, including its content, the skills they acquire, how well they are prepared for a career, the lecturers, the information and materials provided, the study facilities offered, testing and assessment, their programme schedule, study load and academic guidance and counselling. Students who have lost the invitation from the NSE – sent via an email from email@example.com - can also access the survey here.
· By completing the survey, students directly help WUAS improve the quality of its programmes and the student experience in general.
· All data are collected anonymously.
· All students in The Netherlands who participate inform the country’s higher education ranking system and provide valuable information to incoming students on making the right study choices.
What will WUAS do with the results?
Using the feedback, Wittenborg will decide which areas to focus on for improvements in the year to come.
