NSS 2021 publication of data - Update 30 June 2021

The OfS and the UK funding and regulatory bodies have made the following outstanding decisions on the way the NSS 2021 data will be presented:  
  1. Alongside the NSS 2021 results, an average agreement rate based on the results from 2019, 2020 and 2021, with each year weighted evenly, will be published.
  2. The 2021 statistics will be based purely on 2021 data.
  3. NHS placement questions, will not published as part of the NSS data on the OfS website. Providers will be able to receive their own responses to these questions through the NSS Results Portal.
