How can you take part?

On 16 and 27 January you received a mail from NSE in your u-mail account with a direct link to the National Student Survey. If you can’t find it, you can go to the NSE Site and request a new link. It will take only 10–15 minutes to fill in the survey.

  • 5 students will win six months’ tuition fees, worth 975.50 euros

  • 205 students will win a Bol.com voucher, worth 25 euros

Happy? Critical?

Are you happy with your study programme? Are you pleased with your lecturers? Do you feel at home in your student city? The NSE gives you the chance to have your say, also about those areas where you think there is room for improvement. We value the opinion of our students, and the findings of the NSE help us improve your study programmes and your university.


The NSE is, of course, completely anonymous. Only your programme and your starting year are known in advance.

Why is it important to take part in the NSE?

The NSE helps universities to make improvements: in Leiden we focus attention on those areas that students are critical about in the NSE. As an example, the 2015 NSE indicated that Leiden students are less satisfied than students from elsewhere with career preparations and the feedback on teaching evaluations. We are making improvements in both these areas.  

The NSE plays a role in how students choose their programme: the results of the NSE are published on the Studiekeuze 123 website and are a source for Elsevier rankings and for the  Keuzegids Universiteiten (the study options guide for Dutch universities). That means that your opinion can help future students make the right choice. The NSE also goes some way to determining the image of your programme and university: students’ opinions play a role in the rankings.
