Don't lose your voice: give feedback and make change at UCL

15 March 2018

As a student at UCL, you have one main chance a year to give your feedback to the university at an institutional level.

UCL Survey Cycle

This feedback is your chance to make your voice heard so don't miss the opportunity. Together, we make a better education.

Examples of how your feedback can change UCL

You can see lots of ways UCL has changed due to your feedback which includes:

… and much more.

Read about how National Student Survey (NSS) feedback helped change the department of Philosophy

Your opportunities to give feedback (and maybe win some vouchers!)

  • Final year undergraduates: The National Student Survey (NSS) is open until Monday 30 April. Take 5 minutes to share your views about your course. 
  • Penultimate year undergraduates: The Student Experience Survey is open until Sunday 8 April. Take 10 minutes to tell us about your experience and win up to £500.
  • Taught postgraduate students: The Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) will be open 20 April - 16 June. This includes students on Master's, Postgraduate Diplomas and Certificates, but not Master's by Research (MRes).

You can also give positive feedback by nominating UCL staff who have helped make your time at UCL brilliant - The Student Choice Awards nominations are open until 23 March.

Do you have an idea of how to improve education and the student experience at UCL?

There are lots of ways you can get involved, if you want to take it a step further….

  • UCL ChangeMakers can provide you with funding and support to turn your idea into reality. With proposal deadlines of 6 April and 15 June you have plenty of time to develop your ideas! Want to think about it? Either sign up to attend a Q&A session or join the Cup of Coffee campaign and discuss your ideas with a member of staff.
  • Think technology can provide the answer? The next Hackathon event will take place on 2 June. #LearnHack wants to give anyone at UCL a voice and an opportunity to shape how we do things at UCL, and, in particular, how we use technology for teaching and learning. Find out more on the #LearnHack website.
  • If you're interested in becoming an ASER facilitator and helping departments respond to feedback and implement change, you can submit an expression of interest or email changemakers@ucl.ac.uk. Read about Law student Mohammad and what he did as an ASER facilitator to find out how it works.
