Dutch National Student Survey

30 January 2019

What are your thoughts about your study programme and about Avans University of Applied Sciences? Please feel free to share them by completing the Dutch National Student Survey (NSS). The Stichting Studiekeuze123 foundation conducts this survey among all students in Dutch higher education, starting from this week. Be sure to keep an eye on your email for your invitation.

Taking part in this survey provides you as an Avans student with the perfect opportunity to tell us what we are doing well and identify possible areas for development. Your input helps us continuously make real improvements to our programmes. So, take part in the 2019 NSS. Speak up. We are listening. 

Improving our quality

Avans takes the survey outcomes seriously. We make improvements based on the NSS results every year. That's why it is important for you to take part in this survey every academic year. It allows us to use your input to maintain our standards and monitor improvement actions. Both you and future students will benefit from this. Over the last few years, Avans improved its work placement counselling and increased the number of workstations in our teaching buildings based on the NSS outcomes. We have also increased our focus on scheduling. Some of the improvements we make are very concrete and sometimes they take longer to be visible.

We hope that many students will take the time to complete the NSS. The more people take part, the more the survey outcomes will reflect the views of a large part of our student community.
