The QMU Entrant Survey (QES)
QMU logo

What is it?

The QES is an annual survey of all incoming new taught students, i.e. entrants starting their studies at QMU that year.

Who can take part?

If you are an incoming taught student at QMU in 2016/17, the Student Retention and Surveys Team will send you an email in September 2016 inviting you to take part. If you are a Direct Entrant (i.e. undergraduate entrant starting your studies at QMU that year and coming directly to level 2, 3 or 4), and have attended the dedicated Direct Entrant Induction, you will be able to provide your feedback specifically on this within the QES.

When does it run?

Every year in Semester 1, from week 3 to week 5.

QES 2016 is now live! If you are a new QMU student, click on the icon below to complete the survey before the closing date of Sunday 9 October, and you will be entered into a prize draw to win one of two £50 Amazon vouchers.

How is it run?

The survey is run by the Student Retention and Surveys Team, who makes sure all responses remain confidential. Students complete the survey online through a dedicated Bristol Online Survey (BOS) site. All eligible students are emailed a direct link to the survey. You can also complete the survey when it is live by clicking on the logo above.

Why take part?

QES results can help us identify areas where we are doing well, as well as areas for development, so that we can keep improving the experience of students joining QMU. These cover all steps of the joining process, from information before applying to QMU to the admissions process and your induction. See our Making a Difference section for some examples of how we have been acting on your feedback.

Where can I find the results of the survey?

QMU students can see the results from QES 2015 on the QMU Student Surveys Hub. Respondents to the QES 2016 will also receive an email when QES 2016 results become available on the Hub.
