What is NSES?

NSES is the biggest and most comprehensive student survey at UNNC since 2012. The survey is administered by the third party i-graduate, which has worked with more than 1,400 universities and institutions in over 36 countries and has surveyed over 4 million students.

The survey covers learning experience, arrival, living experience, support services, and future plans. The comparative feedback will provide insights into what UNNC’s students think of the university, benchmark the student experience across their operations, and therefore enable us to make continuous improvements. This year, the survey further assesses students’ learning experience during this ongoing pandemic period.
