What is the Student Experience Survey?

The Student Experience Survey is an annual survey of Imperial students which aims to gather feedback on a range of College services and on Imperial College Union. The survey seeks to understand students’ opinions on life at Imperial beyond lecture theatres or labs.

Who is the survey for?

The 2018/19 survey is open to all non-final year undergraduate students and all first year taught postgraduate students.

Final year undergraduates are not included as they will be asked to complete the National Student Survey (NSS) in January 2019.

Research postgraduate students are not included because they will be asked to complete the Postgraduate research experience survey (PRES) later in the academic year.

Why do we run the Student Experience Survey?

The survey gives students an opportunity to let us know how their time at Imperial is going, how we're doing and what we could better. The higher the response rate to the survey the more effectively it can be used to make changes.

As an added incentive, students who completed the survey had the option to enter a prize draw to win one of the following prizes, once the survey had closed a prize draw took place and the successful students were sent their prizes.

  • 4 x £50 Amazon vouchers
  • 10 x £30 Amazon vouchers
  • 2 x £20 Union Shop vouchers
  • 6 x £10 Union Shop vouchers

How are your responses protected?

You can choose not to provide a response to any question in the survey, and information you do provide will be processed in accordance with the College's Privacy notice for students and prospective students and Data Protection Policy.
