UG SOLE: Comments code of practice
Your lecturers will receive their individual numerical results and comments shortly after the survey closes.
This is an opportunity for you to provide constructive feedback to help us to improve. Constructive feedback will help your lecturers understand what they are doing well (so they can do more of it) as well as what they can do better. Please use specific examples and only give examples of what you have seen the lecturer say or do.
The College is committed to promoting and ensuring a working environment where individuals are treated with respect and courtesy. Student survey responses may not be used to insult members of staff or students. Your feedback should be factual and should focus on your lecturer’s actions/behaviour. The use of offensive language or personal, discriminatory or abusive remarks are unacceptable.
You should be aware that comments which may cause offence will be removed from the results. Whist this survey is anonymous, you are also cautioned to avoid self-identification by referring to personal or other identifying information in your free text comments.
