The National Student Survey

The 2019 survey is open from Monday 28 January until Tuesday 30 April.

Last year students raised over £14,000 for Student Minds, the UK’s student mental health charity, and we’re hoping to beat that this year.

The National Student Survey is your opportunity to rate the quality of your overall University experience. Your satisfaction scores are publically available to prospective students, their families and advisors to compare courses and make informed decisions of where and what to study. Your feedback and comments help the University keep what's good and make improvements for the future generation of students.

Find out how your voice makes a real difference.
