All Dutch universities receive annual data on student satisfaction levels (for each individual degree programme) via the National Student Survey (NSS). The results of the NSS are recorded in UvAdata as quickly as possible in order to allow for an analysis at University, faculty and study programme level. The Programme Committee is ideally positioned to make recommendations for improvement. The results of the NSS can be combined with evaluations in UvA Q, allowing for a meaningful analysis of the available data.
A university-level analysis is conducted following publication of the NSS. Data on employee and alumni satisfaction is also annually recorded in the UvAdata system and Education Dashboards, in order to facilitate the development of improvement policies.
