Following the significant changes to the structure of the survey (see below), the Office for Students (OfS) has announced a delay to the publication of results this year. We will be able to access our own detailed NSS results, including subject-level question responses and open text comments, through the NSS Results Portal at 9.30am on Thursday 10 August.
As in previous years, the Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Teaching, Learning and students will work with colleagues across professional services to review the data and provide a summary of results to departments as soon as possible on 10 August.
In 2020, the OfS and the UK funding and regulatory bodies began a two-stage review of the NSS with an aim to ensure it remains fit for purpose and continues to support regulation and student information across the UK.
As a result, the survey questions and response scales have changed for NSS 2023. The changes include:
The optional bank questions and their response scales remained the same. At York, we elected to add in some optional questions as well as some from the bank.
