Thank to everyone who got involved this year to help make this the most successful National Student Survey campaign to date with a final response rate of 79%.

This year has seen a clear desire across the institution to work in a co-creative and collaborative manner to engage in this year’s NSS and activities to support it.

Congratulations to all Schools and programmes that met the 80% University target – it has been our most successful NSS to date with all Schools meeting threshold by week 8 resulting in a much reduced intervention from Ipsos MORI and consequentially a greater degree of local control over communications with our students.

A thank you message from Dean of Students Neil Fowler and Rose Angelova, USSU VP for Business and Law can be viewed below:

Some key response rate figures:

·       We have outperformed the sector where the average response rate stands at 68.3% against our result of 79.06%.

·       All but one Programme Groups have reached reporting threshold with many reaching the 80% target.

·       96 programmes out of the 104 (with more than 10 respondents) met reporting threshold, again with a significant number meeting the 80% target.

Neil Fowler, Dean of Students said: “Gaining input from eight out of ten of our eligible students on almost every programme is significant as it means the results available to us will be truly representative and provide sufficient detail at programme, subject and school level to offer a clear and detailed insight into student satisfaction across the institution and support work to enhance the student experience here at Salford.”

Final response rates for the NSS and Salford Student Survey are available to view through the Student Voice Survey Response Rate QlikView model.

Results for the NSS will be published in August and more detailed information about this will follow soon from Strategy.
