You may have spotted our ‘We listen’ statements around campus, highlighting just a few of the ways in which we have responded to your feedback over the past year.

We’ve been speaking to students to find out what they think of some of these changes and how they will improve their experience at Queen Mary – check out the video. Find out how you can provide feedback and see more of the positive actions we’ve taken this past year by visiting our ‘Tell us’ pages.

Your comments give us the direction we need to improve the student experience at Queen Mary. That’s why we’re always listening out for ways in which we can make your time with us the best it can be.

Look out for Queen Mary’s Student Survey Season from Monday 5 February to use your voice and have your say.
