You’re not the only one who likes to improve – the College does too. Your feedback about your experience at Imperial is really important to the institution, as it helps us improve and enhance the experience students have here.
How do I give the College feedback?
There are loads of ways to give feedback about your experience here. For example, you could:
- Complete surveys, such as the Student Online Evaluation (SOLE), the Student Experience Survey (SES), or the National Student Survey (NSS) . You’ll receive emails asking you to complete feedback surveys – make the most of this opportunity and tell us what you think
- Become an Academic Representative for Imperial College Union. There are many different positions – it’s a great way to enhance your C.V. and make friends as well as contributing to the organisation. If you don’t fancy becoming a Rep yourself, make sure you find out who is the Rep for your course, Department or Year and talk to them about any issues or feedback you have.
- Engage with your Department: lots of Departments run Staff-Student Committees, hold social gatherings, town-hall style meetings and other events which allow you to talk to staff members and get your voice heard
Always remember that if you want to talk to someone about any aspect of College life you can talk to your tutor. See Tutors for more information.
Does feedback make any difference? Will anything change?
In short – yes. At Imperial we take feedback from students very seriously. By sharing your opinions and thoughts, both positive and negative, you’ll be helping both current and future generations of students get the best experience possible at the College. Check out Imperial College Union’s “You said, we did” campaign for more details.
The National Student Survey (NSS) gives final year students the opportunity to express their satisfaction with both the College and the Union. The NSS provides valuable feedback and information to the College, which is used to inform changes made across the institution. Imperial College Union publish a response to the NSS every year with their recommendations on how the College should respond to the results of the survey.
