The National Student Survey (NSE) is a nationwide survey on student satisfaction. Every year, almost all students in Dutch higher education are invited to participate and give their opinion on their course programme and their university or university of applied sciences.
Participating universities and universities of applied sciences provide their students’ e-mail addresses. Wondering how we treat these e-mail addresses and what happens to students’ survey responses?
74 universities and universities of applied sciences are participating in the 2023 National Student Survey (NSE). Curious to see which ones?
Every year we also raffle great prizes among the students who participate in the NSE.
The questionnaire covers multiple aspects of a course program. Some of the questions are asked of all students who participate. In addition, institutions can choose to add questions on further subjects to the questionnaire.
Each year, once the National Student Survey is completed, we publish a research accountability report detailing how the survey was carried out and which choices were made.
