Student surveys: a valuable tool? In recent years, surveys have become a highly valued tool for gathering student feedback. In fact, when developing their approach to regulation, the Office for Students (OfS) made clear their intention to routinely use surveys as a way of collecting student opinion.
It has never been more important to hear students' voices as early as possible into module delivery, and to support their well-being. A short, sharp Student Pulse Survey will enable Module Leaders, Departments and the University to make early adjustments. It can also be used to identify levels of student engagement and wellbeing, to enable proactive connection and support where needed.
