The University of Wolverhampton is committed to improving student outcomes. Your responses to this survey will be kept strictly confidential. The data will only be used for research purposes for the University Access Participation Plan, Teaching Excellence Framework and to make recommendations on how we can improve the student experience and outcomes. We may also publish findings externally (e.g., journal papers / conferences) and we will ensure that you are not identifiable within these reports. Data from this survey will be matched to your university student records data to understand if students are more likely to drop out of their studies if they have different background characteristics (e.g., ethnicity, where you live and disability) or enrolled onto different types of courses / schools. Data will not be transferred to third parties outside of the university.
Your data will be processed for three years to allow us to make comparisons to other surveys collected. If you are concerned with the way your personal data has been handled, you may contact email@example.com to make a complaint. You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner’s Office at https://ico.org.uk/.
The legal basis we rely on for processing your data in this way is that we will obtain your consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time if you no longer wish to be involved in the study. You have a number of other rights available to you, which can be found on the University Data Protection website at https://www.wlv.ac.uk/about-us/governance/legal-information/corporate-compliance/data-protection /.
