We’re committed to working with students as partners – and their feedback is vital to shaping our student experience both now and in the future.
Ideas, comments and requests are collected continually through a variety of channels including course reps, surveys and focus groups. Take a look at how your feedback has been acted upon throughout the University of Plymouth.
National Student Survey (NSS)
Aimed mainly at final-year undergraduates, this externally-run survey gathers opinions from students about their time in higher education, asking for honest feedback on what has been like to study on your course at your institution.
