Student surveys open

The 2017 Undergraduate Programme Survey and the 2017 Postgraduate Research Experience Survey have now launched, and staff are asked to encourage their students to take part.

The 2017 Undergraduate Programme Survey has now launched and will remain open for eligible students until mid-May.

The survey is an opportunity for students to feedback on their experience of their course at Leeds. The questionnaire is available online and it should only take five minutes to complete.  Students will have the choice between 100 free printer credits or a £1 donation to charity as a thank you for their participation online.

All eligible students have been emailed an invitation to take part in the survey. It can also be completed on paper and the support of staff to allow it to be completed in lectures has really helped to boost response rates in the past.

The survey is managed by the Market Research and Insight Team. All eligible undergraduate students (usually non-finalists) are encouraged to take part as the survey helps us to better understand our students’ views on their academic experience.

Responses to student surveys are very important to the University. Individual Schools and Faculties have compiled action plans in response to last year’s student feedback, including the NSS and Programme Surveys. 

The Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) 2017 has also been launched and postgraduate researchers are invited to take part.

The PRES is the only national survey of postgraduate research students’ experience of their programme and at least 114 institutions across the UK will be participating this year. The results give us rich information on our students’ experience (including comparisons both internally and against the sector) which allows us to make changes to better meet student needs in the future.

All eligible students have been sent an e-mail with a link to the survey, or alternatively the survey can also be accessed through the Portal. It takes about 15 minutes to complete and as a thank you for their participation, students will receive a free regular hot drink at selected LUU outlets (terms and conditions apply).

If you would like any further information on these surveys please contact Helen Theakston.
