Final year undergraduate students have the chance to take part in the National Student Survey (NSS), an annual survey which looks at the different aspects of your time at University – from teaching quality and assessment and feedback, to learning resources and personal development, as well as overall satisfaction.
It’s a great opportunity to tell us what you think and help future students get a better idea of what it is like to study here – think of it like giving us a reference!
The NSS takes less than 10 minutes to complete and you can do it online – visit www.thestudentsurvey.com. The NSS is administered by Ipsos Mori, an independent agency. All responses are anonymous.
As a thank you for taking part, we’ll give you a voucher for a free regular hot drink and cookie to use in the Courtyard Café! Simply keep your survey completion confirmation email or screenshot of the completion page and show it to the Student Experience Office to receive your voucher.
Plus if we achieve a 50% completion rate by 6th March we’ll hold a prize draw for two students to win an iPad mini each.
We really value your feedback and use it to make real changes to your experience here at Sheffield University Management School. Our Vision is to deliver an outstanding student experience and we’re continually making improvements. Here are just a few of the changes we’ve made based on your feedback – some of the changes have impacted on your experience and others form part of your legacy for future students! Help us continue to improve by telling us what you think of your university experience in the NSS! Visit www.thestudentsurvey.com
All coursework is now submitted electronically, saving you money on printing and allowing you to submit assignments remotely.
Careers and employability
Our Employability Hub gives you bespoke support and advice, and our current building work is creating more space for us to help you even more. Don’t forget you have access to support for up to three years’ after graduating. Placements are a great opportunity to gain work experience as part of your course, and our new academic Placement Champion and Placement Ambassadors have been working hard to give students who want to do a placement lots of advice and support.
Over the last few years we’ve increased the number of optional modules in second and third year to give you more choice and help you focus on what interests you most. Modules are taught by leading researchers so you know you’re getting access to the very latest thinking. We’re also introducing a ‘module fair’ where students can find out more about the different optional modules and speak to students who are currently studying them.
Working with organisations
As well as introducing you to organisations through employability events, we also collaborate with businesses in our teaching, whether it’s to inform the content of modules, deliver guest lectures or provide us with case-studies to enhance your understanding and learning experience.
We know you want to achieve your best and giving you feedback is an important part of your learning. To help you understand the different types of feedback and how to make the most of the feedback you receive we created a Feedback Handbook – you can access a copy through MUSE.
