Templates & guides

Student engagement templates and guides can help you connect with students in your department or area of work. These are guides that can help you get started, but each department has its own culture and student community so varied approaches are very welcome.

Student survey policy and guidance

UCLs survey policy states that no large-scale surveys of students should be conducted without prior agreement from the Office of the Vice-Provost (Education and Student Affairs). This does not include small-scale surveys (for instance of all the students in your department) but would cover, for example, a survey of all study abroad students. 

The comprehensive survey guide is a great starting point if you have not run a survey before or if you would like to improve your future surveys. The guide contains information on: 
•    Basic survey principles – Things to consider before running a survey
•    Available survey software – Options to run surveys
•    Survey design best practices – Survey length, style, scales 
•    Response rates – Representativeness, margin of error and how to increase your rates 
•    Survey links – Controlling survey access

Please note that in line with UCL’s Survey Policy, no institution-wide survey should take place at the same time as any of our annual student surveys. For more information, please read the survey policy or contact us.
