At the event, providers heard in more detail about:

  • the NSS results timetable
  • how HEFCE uses NSS data
  • how NSS data is presented on Unistats
  • how higher education providers use their NSS results to meet their strategic aims.

Delegates also met representatives from Texuna, the company that run the NSS dissemination site, who demonstrated how the site works.
