Students To Sabotage Plans To Rate University Teaching (UK)

Students Vote to Sabotage Plans to Rate Teaching in Universities

We will boycott the National Student Survey unless the government drops its plan for a Teaching Excellence Framework, say delegates at NUS conference

Students have found a weapon in their battle to stop the government raising tuition fees still further: at a conference in Brighton they have voted to sabotage two key surveys unless the government withdraws its planned reforms.
The National Union of Students will boycott both the National Student Survey (NSS) and the Destination of Leavers from higher education survey (DLHE), which provide statistics the government needs to carry out its plans.
The government intends to introduce a Teaching Excellence Framework (Tef) which will rank universities on a range of factors, including how well students rate them in the NSS.
