Frequently asked questions:

We’re keen to make sure students have the best possible experience while studying at the University of Wolverhampton. To do that we need to know what you think we are doing well and what we can do better. If you’re thinking about taking part this year, these are the answers to some of the questions students often ask:

What is it?

The UK Engagement Survey (or UKES) is a national survey of students inviting them to comment on their engagement with different kinds of learning activities. The questionnaire takes around 10 minutes to complete. 

Why should I take part?

The UK Engagement Survey is your chance to tell us about how you engage with learning on your course, work with others, and take part in the kinds of activities that help you to learn. It is a chance to reflect on how you study and what might help your studies in future. The results also help us make changes that will improve what we do in future and to keep doing the things that are of value. We hope that this will help improve your learning outcomes and those of students like you in the future.

As a thank you for your time, all respondents will be entered into a draw to win a £100 Amazon voucher.

What does it cover?

UKES concentrates on your course and includes: 

  • critical thinking
  • working with other students
  • interacting with staff
  • course challenge
  • connecting and reflecting on the things you’ve learned


What happens to the results?

Your feedback is important. We can compare your experience against similar students at other institutions to see if we are supporting your learning as we should. We use the findings to improve our courses and the learning experience for future students.

We analyse carefully all of the results, read every comment and use this information to inform our investments and efforts to continuously improve the student experience. See your feedback in action.

Is it anonymous?

The survey is anonymous and no-one will be able to identify you from any results. The survey asks that any comments you make should not identify yourself or any specific members of staff.

What do I need to do?

You will receive an email with a link to the questionnaire on 1st February. Simply click on the link or go to the Surveys tab on your e:Vision account and complete the online form. The survey is open until 30th April.

Where can I find out more?
