Student Surveys

Why are the surveys important?

Every year the University run Student Experience Surveys in order to gather your feedback on your University experience and how this can be improved. We use your feedback to help develop courses and facilities at Swansea and improve the student experience. Each College creates an action plan of changes to make from your feedback.

The National Student Survey final year student answers play an important role in helping students make informed decisions about where and what to study and the data published annually on Unistats enables prospective students to compare Higher Education courses at different institutions. At a national level, the data provides quality assurance and accountability for all Universities.

The surveys include questions on:

  • Academic support
  • The teaching on my course
  • Learning resources
  • Organisation and management
  • Learning opportunities
  • Assessment and feedback
  • Learning community
  • Student voice
