Surveys

Surveys are an integral element of Student Voice and an important method of collecting and analysing data.

You have the opportunity to feedback all year round, however, between January — April every year is the single survey period, where we measure student satisfaction through a series of national surveys, managed and developed by independent bodies. Depending on the survey you're eligible for, you will receive a link during this period. All surveys will also have a link on your e:Vision and myWLV app, so look out for those. 

As an incentive, if you complete the relevant survey you’ll be entered into a free prize draw!

The NSS is an influential source of public information and will help those considering higher education to decide where and what to study. 

Individual responses are confidential and can't be identified.
