National Student Survey Analysis


The National Student Survey (NSS) is an annual survey conducted by the National Union of Students (NUS) aimed at final-year undergraduates in the UK. With approximate response rates of 70%, the survey constitutes some of the most important data available for gauging student satisfaction.

As part of our wider research into trends in undergraduate economics and the employability of economics graduates, we analyse the NSS data. To help gain perspective, we compare the results for economics to similar subjects (mathematics, politics, finance and business studies) and also break the results down by university type (‘Russell Group’, ‘Post-1992’ and ‘Other’).
