Educational and Student Policy


The University uses the student feedback it receives through the National Student Survey (NSS, for final year undergraduates), the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES) and the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) and recently the Student Barometer (SB) which will replace PTES and PRES, to encourage positive changes to its provision and to enhance the student experience. Any concerns identified through the surveys’ results are referred to the relevant Schools, Departments and Faculties and subsequently to the appropriate General Board Committee (with student representation), for consideration, as required.

Recent graduates are asked to complete the Destination of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) Survey. For further information please see the DLHE pages on the Careers Service website.

In addition to enhancing the student experience locally, some survey data is available to prospective students nationally via the Unistats website.
