Entering Student Survey

The Entering Student Survey is administered to students who enter the Foundation Year Program (NUFYP) and to directly-admitted undergraduate students. The purpose of this survey is to develop a better understanding of the pre-entry characteristics and educational expectations of entering NU students (NUFYP and directly-admitted undergraduate students). This survey is administered before students formally begin their NU academic programme (typically during the orientation period). This survey has been administered annually since 2015.
