Calling all final year students!
2013 National Student Survey
The annual National Student Survey begins today. It is a valuable opportunity for you and your fellow students in their final year to provide us with feedback on the quality of teaching, assessment and support at SOAS.
I know that many of you are in the process of contemplating the next steps in your life. This is the chance for you to reflect on your experience here and the ways in which the School has prepared you for life after SOAS and, most important for me, on the areas in which we as an institution could improve.
We take your feedback seriously. Recent key initiatives, driven by previous survey results, have been the new canteen and working printing facilities (2012); the introduction of online coursework submissions (2011); the Library Transformation Project (2010); and the Language Entitlement programme (2009).
Your feedback will enable us to further improve the learning and teaching environment at SOAS. This will be of real benefit to the students that follow in your footsteps and to those of you that return to SOAS for postgraduate work or other programmes. It will help to ensure that the School remains a leading institution for years to come, offering you lifelong benefit through your association with its prestigious reputation and its global network of alumni and friends.
You will be contacted directly by email from Ipsos MORI asking you to take the survey. It should only take five minutes to complete and I would be very grateful if you would take this time to help. It can also be accessed through the National Student Survey website at www.thestudentsurvey.com.
Find out more about the survey at the launch desk by the main staircase this week.
The best of luck with the rest of the year and in your final examinations!
Thanks and best wishes,
Professor Paul Webley
