A third year student has collected a cheque worth up to £150 after entering the National Student Survey (NSS) prize draw.

Psychology student Benjamin Millinson was excited to receive the prize, which allows him to reimburse up to £150 of his graduation costs. The winner was randomly selected from all students who entered this year's National Student Survey. Lots of our students got involved this year with an excellent response rate of 79.85%, which is an improvement from 2022's turn out.

The NSS is a chance for students to provide feedback on their experience of university. It’s an independently run, anonymous survey asking final year undergraduate students across the country to reflect on what they liked about their course and what they think we could do to improve things at BGU.

The feedback helps prospective students make informed decisions of where and what to study, as the analysis from the survey is made publicly available. Our students' voices are hugely important and help shape the future of our university.

Benjamin said: “I’m really happy to have won the prize and it’ll help towards costs when I graduate this summer.

"I think it’s important for students to have their voices heard, and I took part in the survey to help the progression of the university.”
