The National Student Survey (NSS) has now launched and the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) and Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) both launch on February 1st.

If you are an eligible student can you please complete the survey you have been asked to contribute to. Your support in doing so is vital to ensure that we receive the feedback we need to deliver continuous improvement to our the students’ experiences within our school

As a small thank you to students who complete the surveys, Scottish campus students will receive a free hot drink or bottle of water at any of the UWS catering outlets, while London-based students will be entered into a prize draw to win a UWS hoodie.

We have set ourselves the ambitious response rate target for NSS of 80%, which was achieved last year. With your help, we can repeat this remarkable achievement.

The feedback we get from these surveys is invaluable, as it gives our students a voice and the chance to positively influence the student experience across the whole university. This year, the 3 surveys will run as follows –

  • National Student Survey (23rd January – 30 April 2017) Final year undergraduate students are asked to participate in the National Student Survey. The NSS is carried out annually by Ipsos MORI, an independent market research agency.
  • Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (1 February – 16 June 2017) PTES allow institutions to collect feedback from current postgraduate taught students. It is run in-house with support from the Higher Education Academy and Bristol Online Surveys.
  • Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (1 February – 16 June 2017) PRES allow institutions to collect feedback from current postgraduate taught students. It is run in-house with support from the Higher Education Academy and Bristol Online Surveys.

Eligible students will receive an email to their student email account with more details about how they can access the relevant survey.

The University is once again running an intercampus trophy competition which will be awarded to the campus with the highest survey response rate,. It was won last year this by Ayr Campus.
