Students at the University have raised more than £1,000 for charity so far by taking part in the National Student Survey.

The survey, which is open until 30 April, gives final year undergraduate students the opportunity to share their opinions on what they like about the University, as well as things that they feel could be improved.

To say thank you for taking part, students who complete the survey online can choose to donate £3 to the Guild’s chosen charities (Teenage Cancer TrustMRANGRoyal Voluntary Service, and Catalyst Performing Arts) or take the £3 as print credits.

19 per cent of those students who have so far completed the survey have opted to donate the money to charity.

The Royal Voluntary Service, which provides practical and emotional support for older people, can give somebody in need a winter warm pack, a food hamper or a social afternoon with tea and cake for every £3 they receive.

For just £250, Teenage Cancer Trust, which helps young people aged 13 – 24 who have been diagnosed with cancer, can fund 10 hours of vital nursing care or buy 10 console games for patients to play with their friends on a Teenage Cancer Trust unit.

Students who are eligible to take part in the survey will receive an invitation email which includes a link to gift £3 to charity or claim the print credit before being automatically redirected to the National Student Survey website.

Please check your University email account or access the link directly at

There are also three £500 prizes up for grabs for the department with the most improved response rate from last year within each of the three Faculties to celebrate with their graduating students in the summer.

Find out how your department is doing on the NSS response rate page.
