Follow-up actions and programme-specific factsheets

Last July you received information about the first results of the 2016 National Student Survey (NSE). The NSS is very important to Utrecht University as we use the outcomes to continuously improve the facilities and support for our students. A few examples of the actions we have since taken:  

  • The previous couple of years you were pretty critical of the preparation to your future careers. This convinced Utrecht University to introduce the Career Services. We are glad to see your increasing appreciation of this theme (2015: 3.44; 2016: 3.54). Not familiar with Career Services yet? Visit www.uu.nl/careerservices or come for a free professional LinkedIn photo and CV check on November 14, 15 or 17.
  • As students you rightly attach great importance to a sufficient number of study spots. Last year we increased the number of study places. We also introduced the Studyspot app to actively inform you of the location of available study spots. University Library De Uithof is currently looking into further areas for additional study spots in the near future.  
  • You were also critical of the course schedules. This is a very complex issue and unfortunately we cannot satisfy all of you. What we can do is inform you as well as possible. That’s why we launched the MyUU app in September. It allows you to check your personal schedule both on Android and Apple devices. The app always provides you with the most up to date schedules including any changes. Download the MyUU app via the iTunes App store or Google Play.  

Are you interested in the NSS results of your degree programme? Please find the programme-specific* factsheets of the NSE results below.

Obviously, we continuously work towards improving the quality of our teaching and the study facilities. We cannot do this without the support of our students; so please note that the next National Student Survey will take place in January 2017. Will you fill it out again?

* Factsheets are available only for programmes with a response to the 2016 NSS of at least 30 students (or 50% of the students for programmes of fewer than 30 students).
