Undergraduates, what do YOU think of Strathclyde?!
We need feedback from our students to help us make informed changes that improve our students' experience. Final year undergraduates at Strathclyde have the chance to participate in the National Student Survey to provide feedback on their experience. We think that all of our undergraduate students should have a chance to get their voices heard regardless of the year they're in, so we launched the annual Strathclyde Undergraduate Student Survey (SUSS).
Now all undergraduates have the chance to give us their views on what works well and where you think we can improve each year. We need your help so we can continue to develop the student experience at Strathclyde for everyone's benefit. You can check if you are eligible to fill in the survey by accessing Myplace.

What is it?
The SUSS is an internal survey aimed at all undergraduates not being surveyed in the National Student Survey. The survey asks students to provide their views on their course and university experience. The survey should take around 10 minutes to complete. The results of the survey will be disseminated across the institution in aggregated format, to allow informed decisions to be made in areas that will improve the student experience.
Why should I take part?
This is your chance to tell us your thoughts about your course and about studying at Strathclyde: what you particularly like and what you think could be improved upon. The results of the survey are used across the University to provide valuable information on the student experience and help inform change. Additionally, to thank you for taking part, we’re running a prize draw for respondents! Respondents could win a £300 Amazon voucher!
What does it cover?
The SUSS will ask you to rate how satisfied you are on a number of things like: the teaching on your course, the organisation and management of your course, support services and your engagement. You will also have the chance to leave some comments in your own words.
How are the results used?
Your feedback is important. We will use the findings of the survey to improve our course and learning experiences for students at Strathclyde. To see details of some of the changes we’ve been making, to which student feedback has contributed, please visit You said we did.
Is it anonymous?
The survey is confidential and you will not be able to be identified from your individual responses. Only the Student Survey Team has access to individual responses. Contact details collected for the prize draw will be disassociated from survey responses and only be used to administer the draw. Reports of the results of the survey will be made available across the institution in aggregate format and no individual will be identifiable. Free text comments from respondents are checked for anonymity and references to named individuals are redacted before being distributed across the University.
What do I need to do?
An invitation to participate in the survey will be sent to your Strathclyde email address in February, with additional reminders being sent to non-respondents until the survey closes. These will contain your unique link to the survey which should take around 10 minutes to complete. The survey can also be accessed by eligible students via Myplace.
Where can I find out more?
If you’re unsure about anything to do with the survey, or have any difficulty in accessing or completing it, please get in touch with the Student Survey Team. You can opt out of the survey anytime by using the opt-out link in your invitation and reminder emails or you can email the Student Survey Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your name, including ‘SUSS opt out’ in the text.
