You Shape UCL


UCL Student Experience Survey

This is an internal survey developed specifically for UCL students and is separate from national surveys such as the National Student Survey (NSS).

The UCL Student Experience Survey (SES) is for undergraduates in their penultimate year of study. Students on a year abroad are also eligible to take the survey, but your responses should be reflective of your time at UCL only. As with all of our surveys, your answers will be anonymous.


The SES is a great opportunity to provide open and honest feedback on your programme and support services at UCL, while you are still studying. 

Results and comments from the survey help shape your UCL experience, as well as the experience of future students. You can see examples of the changes made in response to survey feedback on the You Shaped UCL pages.  

SES 2019 

UCL's Student Experience Survey ran from 1 March to 10 April 2019. More than 1,000 students took part in the survey, with a total response rate of 20%. This matched the response rate achieved in 2018. 

Results and and anonymised comments were shared with departments as part of the Annual Student Experience Review (ASER) data set. Responses to surveys have already shaped a number of significant changes across UCL and in academic departments.
