QMU Student Survey (QSS)
QMU logo

What is it?

The QSS is an annual survey which covers a range of topics on the student learning experience. It asks the same questions as the NSS and is for all taught QMU students who are not eligible to take part in the NSS. Within the QSS, taught postgraduate students are also asked specific questions similar to the PTES (Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey, which is run nationally).

Who can take part?

All taught students at QMU in 2016/17 not eligible for the NSS or the PRES can take part. This normally means first to third year undergraduates as well as taught postgraduate students.

When does it run?

Every year during semester two.

How is it run?

The survey is run by the Student Retention and Surveys Team, who makes sure all responses remain confidential. Students can 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?

QSS results help us identify areas where we are doing well, as well as areas for development, so that we can keep improving your learning experience throughout your time at QMU. 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 QSS 2016 on the QMU Student Surveys Hub. Respondents to the QES 2017 will also receive an email when QES 2017 results become available on the Hub.
