online module evaluation questionnaire

During the year we conduct a number of surveys to gather as much student feedback as possible

Student Experience Survey (SES)

Each semester, we ask students to evaluate the modules they are studying. We do this through an online questionnaire, and this process is termed 'Student Experience Survey' (SES). The SES will enable the module coordinator to better understand what improvements can be made to enhance the experience of the student cohort in their modules.

The SES asks about your experiences of a specific module on your course. It is an opportunity to share your views, and help us shape and improve the student experience. The SES has a set of core questions about various aspects of being a student, including:

  • The teaching on my module
  • Learning Opportunities
  • Marking and Assessment
  • Academic support
  • Organisation and management
  • Learning resources
  • The student voice
  • Overall satisfaction

Furthermore, there is an opportunity for the module coordinator to add up to four additional questions that are specific to the module.
