National Student Survey (NSE)

Help improve your degree programme!

How would you rate your degree programme? What do you think of your lecturers, course content and the examination and assessment methods? The National Student Survey (NSE) is a large-scale nationwide annual survey offering students an opportunity to share their opinions about their degree programme. The NSE is usually conducted in the period between January and March.

So how did your degree programme do?

Curious to find out how your fellow students rated your degree programme? Check out the programme overview to see the scores for each AUAS degree programme.

Let's get to work

The NSE provides Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS) with valuable and reliable data on the things you and your fellow students are satisfied or dissatisfied with. Your degree programme department can use this information to further improve its teaching activities where necessary. Now all NSE results are available, degree programme departments can discuss these findings with their students (maybe with you too!) and lecturers in order to figure out what they mean in practice. How and when should we work together to improve our teaching activities? After all, it is all about ensuring we have the most up-to-date and flexible teaching and research.

Why is the NSE important?

  • Improve the quality of your courses
    Only with your feedback on what you are satisfied with and where there is room for improvement can we make further improvements to the quality of our education. Contemporary, flexible education in a rich learning environment, both now and in the future. That is our goal.
  • Help prospective students
    By completing the survey, you will be helping prospective students choose the right programme for them as well as contributing to the development of your own programme. After all, anyone considering following a degree programme will be keen to hear the experiences of other students.


The survey consists of a short core questionnaire with eight blocks of questions. In addition to the set core questionnaire, which is the same for all educational institutions, AUAS has added questions on the following topics:
• Remote Learning
• Equal treatment
• Reflection
• Curriculum flexibility
• Skills – practical research
• Challenge and commitment

The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.


Your privacy is important to us. That is why the NSE has been designed to safeguard your privacy. The results will be compiled in anonymised databases and presented in such a way that they cannot be traced back to you individually. More details on this can be found on the Studiekeuze123 website.
