Final year undergraduate students are being urged to have their say before the National Student Survey (NSS) closes on 30 April.
To say thank you for taking part, the University is giving £3 in FREE print credits to all students who complete the survey online.
There are also two £500 Graduation Packages up for grabs for the department with the highest response rate and the department with the most improved response rate.
The Department of Cultures, Languages and Area Studies (CLAS) is currently leading the highest response rate race again this year with 84.3%. The department currently in the lead for the most improved rate prize is the School of Archaeology, Classics and Egyptology, with a 11.6% increase on their 2013 rate at the same point in the survey.
Last year’s winners were the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology which achieved a 13% increase on the 2012 response in the department, and CLAS which achieved an impressive 93% response rate overall.
Both departments used their prizes to celebrate with students with CLAS holding an end of exams party, while the Department of Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology celebrated before their graduation ceremony at an event in the Crypt Hall of the Metropolitan Cathedral.
The NSS is a national survey which gives final year undergraduate students the opportunity to share their views about their experience at University.
Students who are eligible to take part are asked to give their opinion on a number of areas including teaching quality, assessment and feedback on their work, academic support and learning resources. The results, which are published in September, are an important indicator of student satisfaction.
All eligible students have received an email inviting them to take part in the survey and explaining how to claim the free print credits.
You can find out more about improvements which have been made based on previous years’ feedback by looking at ‘student feedback’ stories on Student News.
The NSS is commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and administered by independent research agency Ipsos MORI. It is part of a quality assurance system to generate more detailed information about teaching quality.
