Alice Lui’s Festival Experience at Science Museum

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 15:46:33 +0000

External Surveys

In addition to collecting our own feedback on your experiences of using UCL Careers to help us improve the services we provide, many organisations conduct market research/opinion polling on a local or national level to gain information on student experiences whilst at University.

These surveys often include research into areas surrounding graduate employment and though the purpose of individual surveys and how their results are published varies immensely, they can be a good way of getting your thoughts and feedback out to a wider audience.

Please note however that as neither UCL Careers  nor UCL have any involvement with these surveys or control over any data that you submit to external organisations, we strongly recommend for your own benefit that you read and are happy with any terms and conditions relating to these surveys before completing them.


National Student Survey - NSS

NSS logo - click to link to survey

The twelfth annual National Student Survey (NSS) is open between 11 January and 30 April 2016. As you near the end of your studies, we hope you will take this opportunity to tell us about your course and your time at your university or college — both what you liked and what you think could be improved. Your feedback will be used to compile comparative data for your course, which will be published to help prospective students decide where and what to study. Your institution and students' union will also use this information to better understand the experience of its students and to help inform change. The NSS is run by http://www.ipsos-mori.com/ on behalf of the UK Higher  Education funding bodies. We are an independent market research agency, so please be assured that you and your answers will remain anonymous at all times.

Submit feedback at: www.thestudentsurvey.com BEFORE 30 April 2016.
