Study association LBC wins NSE race again
How many cookies did the Faculty of Science hand out to thank its students for completing the National Student Survey? And how many reminders to complete the survey did the students actually receive? The answers to these questions, and the winner of the study association competition, were revealed at the Science Club on 11 April.

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.
‘Gevulde koeken’ for students
The Faculty of Science values the opinion of its students with which it can continue to improve the study programmes. The faculty had therefore promised concrete acknowledgments: through the study associations, students would be treated to cookies (‘gevulde koeken’) at a faculty response rate of 25%. This percentage was well surpassed: 38.7 percent of the Science students completed the NSE in 2010.
Race of the study associations
The five Science study associations are also committed to having as many students as possible fill in the NSE. They went to lectures, e-mailed their members and deployed their social media channels. For a long time they went neck and neck in the battle for the highest response rate. The Leiden Biologists Club (LBC) eventually reached 45 percent, leaving Aesculapius (41 percent) and De Leidsche Flesch (39 percent) behind. The LBC will receive a contribution from the faculty for a sports activity to their choosing.
