National Student Survey. Speak up. We are listening.

18 January 2017

The annual National Student Survey (NSS) is coming again. This week you will receive an email from Studiekeuze123 with a link to the survey. We hope that many students take the NSS again.

Let us know what you think of Avans University of Applied Sciences. We will use your opinion to truly improve the quality of our education. Speak up. We are listening.

Paul Rüpp, the chairman of the Avans Executive Board, explains why it is meaningful to take part:

Improving quality

Avans takes the results of this survey very seriously. That is why it is important that you participate. Even if you are a senior student and have filled in the survey before.

Each year we take measures based on the outcomes of the NSS, from which you and students after you can benefit. In 2016 we improved:

  • the number of sockets
  • the number of silent workplaces, and
  • the work placement supervision.

Win a travel or gift voucher

If you fill in the NSS, you may win several prizes:

  • a travel voucher of € 2.000,-
  • 10 cash prizes of € 400,-, for your rent, books, tuition…
  • 265 Bol.com gift vouchers worth € 20,-

NSS on mobile devices

You can complete the survey on laptop, smartphone, tablet and PC. You can save your answers temporarily and switch between devices without any problem.

The survey runs until March 12. If you don’t want to participate you can unsubscribe. So that you will not receive any reminders.

What is the National Student Survey ?

The NSS is the large-scale survey on the quality of Dutch universities. The opinions of the students are leading. The national organization is owned by Studiekeuze123. The Avans Learning and Innovation Center coordinates internal organization, together with the programmes.

The NSS results form the basis for the yearly rankings of Elsevier and Keuzegids.
