Feedback for study programmes

In the NSE, students give their opinion on all aspects of their education, for example the curriculum, teachers, teaching methods and communication. With the results from the NSE, the university can identify which aspects are going well and which need improvement.

Race of the study associations

The six Science study associations are also committed to having as many students as possible fill in the NSE. The Leidse Biologen Club (LBC) achieved the highest percentage of completed surveys: 50.94 percent of their members completed the NSE. This means that LBC receives a contribution from the faculty for an (online) activity. This put them just ahead of Shift, which finished at 50.18 percent. De Leidsche Flesch, Aesculapius, CDL and LIFE achieved percentages of 44.74 percent, 44.68 percent, 43.55 percent and 34.18 percent respectively.

Disclaimer: the results shown are based on response figures that were received on 15 March. Small corrections are still possible. The lead of the winning study association can no longer be made up.
