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 2017

Aimed mainly at final-year undergraduates, the National Student Survey (NSS) gathers your opinions about your experience of your course. It asks 27 questions, relating to eight aspects of the learning experience. You're also given the opportunity to make positive and negative comments in an open answer question.

The NSS is undertaken independently by Ipsos MORI. The survey respects the privacy of those taking part, and as such individual responses are confidential and at no point will students be identified to UWE Bristol.

Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey 2017

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?

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.
