This article provides information about the UK Engagement Survey for 2018.

What is the UK Engagement Survey?

The University is taking part in the Higher Education Academy’s UK Engagement Survey (UKES) delivered by Bristol Online Surveys. 

The survey is aimed at first and second-year undergraduate students and will take about ten minutes to complete.

On Monday 19 March, a link to the survey was sent to first and second-year undergraduates who are studying a programme of at least 60 credits this year. The survey is open until Friday 15 June 2018.

On completing the survey, you are automatically entered into a prize draw with the chance of winning one of 20 Amazon Vouchers worth £20 each.


Purpose of the survey

The survey findings will provide the University with feedback about how you are challenged and encouraged by your studies. The results of the survey help us to understand how you experience your course, how engaged you are by the teaching and how supported you are in your learning and development.

The UKES asks questions about your experience of the following key areas:

  • Critical thinking
  • Learning with others
  • Interacting with staff
  • Reflecting and connecting
  • Course challenge
  • Engagement with research
  • Staff-student partnership
  • Skills development (hard and soft skills)
  • How your time is spent


Accessing the survey

The email inviting you to complete the survey, takes you to the survey platform via a personalised url. This is the only way you can access the survey and you do not need any further information to complete it.

Findings from the survey

The University is sent the results at the end July, therefore we can analyse the data and start to respond to what you are telling us while you are still completing your studies. The results will be made available through MyPort.
