National Student Survey (NSE)

National Student Survey

The National Student Survey is a national survey in which students give their opinion on their degree programme and university. The 2021 results were published on June 23 by Studiekeuze123.

What is the NSE?

The National Student Survey asks students throughout the Netherlands for their opinion on the content of their programme, acquired skills, preparation for a professional career, lecturers, information provided by the programme, study facilities, testing and assessment, timetables, workload and academic student counselling.

The results help the UvA identify areas where it needs to improve regarding to study facilities, the study programme, timetables, student counselling and much more. In addition, the results provide input for orientation activities for new students and for the compilation of national rankings.

Why participate?

By filling in the NSE you help the UvA improve the quality of its study programmes and give us insight into what is going well and where we can do better. You also help future students make a better choice with regards to their study programme and institution.

Results of the NSE 2021

On June 23, Studiekeuze123 has published the results of the National Student Survey 2021. With regards to overall satisfaction, UvA students score their education a 3,83 out of 5. These are the results of the National Student Survey (NSE) which has been filled out by 31% of all UvA students between January and March 2021. This means the UvA scores slightly lower than the average of other universities, which stands at 3,89 out of 5. Because of different line of questioning and a shorter survey, the 2021 results cannot be compared to the results of previous NSE editions.
