Calling all animators - time to fill out the National Student Survey!
The National Student Survey (NSS) is to higher education in the UK what Gallup polls are to politicians. The results speak volumes about the state of our universities and, in particular, which ones are giving students the kind of excellent experience that we ought to be delivering.
The survey opened on January 21st and runs until 30 April 2014. Bucks has set a target for 75% of eligible final-year students to complete their survey - you'll be seeing NSS helpers in red T-shirts around campus, ready to ambush you with a smile, a pen - and a form to fill in.
If encouragement doesn't work, there is always bribery. This year there is a new incentive for students to fill in the survey - a £5 voucher to spend either on printing or in the campus cafes.

So go ahead and get yourself a free lunch, courtesy of the University, and then release all your pent-up rage in an online box-ticking rant. Or, hopefully, say nice things about us. It's all anonymous and it's all up to you.
