Both surveys are anonymous and are open until Friday 30 April 2017. They offer you the chance to enter a draw to win an iPad and to claim a £5 voucher to spend in The Refectory or Curiositea.
To claim your voucher you will need a survey completion receipt. If you complete the NSS you will be emailed a completion receipt. If you complete the BGUSSS you are given the option of printing or downloading a receipt on the final page of the survey. Once you have your receipt, present it at the Students’ Union reception desk, in the Students’ Union Building, on any weekday during term-time between 11am and 3pm, up until Friday 28 April, and they’ll exchange it for a voucher.

Also known as the BGUSSS (‘bee-gus’), the BGU Student Satisfaction Survey is an annual survey. The BGUSSS asks students to rate their satisfaction with all aspects of life at BGU and is conducted by, and is unique to, BGU. The survey is open to all students regardless of programme, year group or mode of study.
The National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual survey that focusses mainly on students’ satisfaction with their course. It is a national survey, completed only by final year undergraduates, at universities and colleges all over the country. The NSS is conducted independently by IPSOS-MORI on behalf of the UK’s higher education funding bodies.
Between them the NSS and the BGUSSS ask a total of 80 questions. Once the results are in we review the response, which helps us draw conclusions about how we’re doing. We identify areas in which we’re doing well and also those in which we could do better. Each year we produce a summary and response document reviewing the findings of both surveys, outlining key information and detailing how we plan to improve in the areas we need to. You can download a copy of the 2016 summary and response document here.
