Four lucky students have scooped £25 music vouchers for simply completing the National Student Survey 2007. Nicola Higgins, Catherine Bellwood, Emma King and Cassandra Mercer were all chosen from the prize draw.

The aim of the National Student Survey (NSS) is to gather feedback on the quality of students' courses, to help inform the choices of future applicants to higher education, and to contribute to public accountability.

Results from the NSS are an essential element of the revised quality assurance framework for higher education.

The first full-scale survey, including all publicly-funded higher education institutions in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, was completed in 2005. Most final-year undergraduate student institutions across the UK were asked a series of questions about the quality of their courses.
