» NSS Race Week Three: it's Neck and Neck as we Enter the Final Stretch!

We’re entering the final sprint of the first phase of the NSS Race: the School with the highest response rate by next Tuesday will win the first celebration event!

Prizes you can win this year:

  1. If you complete the survey before 28th February, you will be entitled to a free hot drink. Vouchers are available from the Advice Zones on each campus.
  2. If you complete the survey at any point, you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win one of four £250 Amazon vouchers. The winners will be selected by Ipsos Mori and they will be informed if they have won by the end of April 2017.
  3. NEW for 2017: the University will pay the Students’ Union to organise a celebration event for students of the Schools…
    • with the highest percentage response rate by the 28th February
    • with the highest percentage response rate by the 30th April

The Final Stretch

As far as faculties go, Creative Industries students have maintained their pole position for a third week in a row, but Business & Society is snapping at their heels.

However, to win the prize, it’s a race between the Schools. After three weeks, he School of Care Sciences is still in the lead for winning the Celebration Event. Looks like nurses and midwives are the keenest for a celebration! Their faculty-mates in the School of Health, Sport and Professional Science, on the other hand, appear to be slowpokes when it comes to filling in surveys, languishing in last place (43%), dragging down the average for LSE...

The top five still contains the same schools as last week, but the order has changed. Looks like a neck-and-neck race heading for a photo finish!

Fill in the NSS, encourage your coursemates, and spread the word!

If you want a chance to party, help your School top the league by the end of the month!

FBS:59%, CES:54%, FCI:60%, LSE:54%

Here’s how USW’s Schools are doing at the end of week one:

Care Sciences: 67%, Art and Design: 65%, Psychology and Therapeutic Studies: 65%, Humanities and Social Sciences:63%, Computing and Mathematics: 63%

The security certificate used for authentication on the eduroam wireless service is due to expire on Friday 17th February 2017. IT Services will be updating the Certificate over night from Tuesday 13th / Wednesday14th.

Following this change users may need to re-verify their eduroam connection (profile) to accept the new security certificate.

On a Windows computer or device you may see a message as follows;

The certificate is called eduroam-auth.glam.ac.uk and has been issued by QuoVadis Root CA 2 As long as any information presented to you matches these, you can safely ‘connect’ or ‘accept’ to the eduroam service. Your experience will likely depend on the manufacturer and possibly the operating system (OS) of the device being used.

Failing this some users may need to “forget” the network and re add it. To add the eduroam service please see the following guides;

The Race is On!

As far as faculties go, Creative Industries students have maintained their pole position for a second week, with Computing, Engineering and Science students falling further behind the other faculties.

However, to win the prize, this isn’t a faculty race, it’s a race between the Schools. For now, the School of Care Sciences is still in the lead for winning the Celebration Event. The top five have changed since last week, with new entry Psychology and Therapeutic Studies rising straight to second place, pushing the Media School out of the top five. The School of Computing and Mathematics have upped their game, almost tying for second place. Will any school catch up with Care Sciences? We’ll see which USW students are most keen for a celebration!

Fill in the NSS, encourage your coursemates, and spread the word!

If you want a chance to party, help your School top the league by the end of the month!
