National Student Survey (NSS) for final-year undergraduates
UK Engagement Survey (UKES) for non-final-year undergraduates
Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey for postgraduate taught students.

This is your chance to provide honest feedback about what you like about Queen Mary or how we could improve the experience of current and future students. 

To mark the launch of the Student Survey Season, a World Food Fair is taking place in Library Square, Mile End, 11.30am-2.30pm every day this week, with a whole week of games and activities at the same time next week. Come and visit our survey stall to fill in your survey and try out the food and games!
