Student feedback

The University encourages feedback from students in a number of ways. Departments and Faculties normally use evaluation forms for their courses, most University committees have student representatives as members, Colleges have student officers, and focus groups on current issues are often held.

As well as local engagement, there are two University-wide student surveys. During their final year, undergraduate students are asked to participate in the National Student Survey, while non-final undergraduate students and postgraduate students (both taught and research) are asked to participate in the Student Barometer survey.

The University is currently using Tableau for visualising the results of the University-wide surveys and everyone with a Raven password can access the data (which are aggregated when necessary).

Results are disseminated to Faculty Board and Degree Committee Secretaries, Senior Tutors, Graduate Tutors, Careers Services, Disability Resource Centre, Counselling Service, University Library and are considered in Faculty Boards, Degree Committees, College and University Committees with teaching and learning responsibilities.

Top level monitoring and analysis is also undertaken and is overseen by the General Board’s Education Committee and/or the Participation Data Advisory Group.
