The 2023 National Student Survey is open!

The 2023 National Student Survey is open, providing our students with the opportunity to give honest feedback on their time studying with The Open University.

Surveys have been sent out to a random sample of undergraduate students (usually nearing their final year of study). If you have been invited to take part, you have until midnight on Sunday 30 April 2023 to complete your survey.

The National Student Survey is a nationwide survey that assesses students’ experience of higher education in the UK. There are many other reasons why invited students should take part, but here’s just a few of them:

  • The results are taken very seriously and used to enhance the quality of our course materials and delivery.
  • Results are used by prospective students, their families and advisors to make decisions on what and where to study.
  • You’ll be helping prospective students make the right choices about what they study.
  • All Open University respondents will be able to enter a prize draw for the chance to win one of twenty £50 Amazon vouchers.

Feedback from previous years has been used to make changes to teaching and assessment, and to improve the experience of Open University students. You can have a look at the changes that The Open University have already put in place, based on these responses.

Following responses to the NSS in the past, we at the Students Association:

  • Made our website and reports fresher and more colourful.
  • Increased our work on the Annual Membership Survey (and focus groups etc) to allow us to better represent students’ needs.

The survey only takes a few minutes to complete. You can take the survey (if eligible) and find out more information at
