COULD THIS BE THE MOST IMPORTANT SURVEY YOU COMPLETE ALL YEAR ?
It’s time again for the most important survey you’ll fill in all year!! (“WHAT?!?! Not another one” I hear you say!) BUT this one has a different twist.
It’s the NSS (National Student Survey) and is open for all 3rd and final year students. Actually, there is a similar thing for all other students also, called ISS (Internal Student Survey) too, so look out for that one too!
So WHY is it so important? Let me tell you...
- Your HONEST, anonymous feedback helps the tutors/ course leaders/ management to shape your course for the future around what you students actually want and need.
- The results are collated and published PUBLICLY; you know those University league tables published in The Times newspaper? Yep? Well… this survey is basically what that list is based on! Your feedback course improvement higher league table results for UCA stronger degree for you!!
- It’s open to each and every final year student, welcoming feedback from every crevice of the student population, across the country, to ensure that views are representative and varied.
As of this week, Feb 8th, your course will put aside time to fill in this survey – it’ll probably take half an hour to complete, and you should have had an email with the link already.
If you are experiencing issues in your course that can’t wait till then, then it’s ok! You have course reps to do that! Talk to them – if you don’t know who your course rep is then find them here; https://ucasu.com/student-voice/coursereps/
Also, Question #23 – “Are you satisfied with the Students’ Union?” Let us know if we’re doing our job properly.
Don’t let this opportunity to have your say pass! Here is the link to the survey;
