Student surveys

Your feedback helps shape your University. Each year, you will have the opportunity to feedback on your student experience via student surveys, providing us with vital information needed to keep improving your courses and services.

National Student Survey 2018

Aimed mainly at final-year undergraduates, the National Student Survey (NSS) gathers your opinions about your course experience. It asks questions about your learning experience  – take part and help shape the academic experiences of our future students.

As an incentive, we’re giving away 15 graduation packages in a prize draw. You could win two guest tickets to graduation, robe hire and a photography package. One lucky winner will also get a chance to ride in the UWE Bristol hot air balloon.

The NSS is undertaken independently by Ipsos MORI and all individual responses are confidential.

Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey

The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) is an opportunity for taught postgraduate students to give feedback on your learning experience.

It should take around 15 minutes to complete (login required), and the findings will be used to improve courses and the learning experience for future students.

The PTES is a sector-wide survey that's run by the Higher Education Academy (HEA).

What happens with the feedback we collect?

Data from surveys is supplemented with the information we receive through student reps, as well as local level feedback such as module feedback forms. The University then uses this information to address the points you raise, and results are shared through student reps and The Students' Union at UWE.
