Flint 30 October > Welcome to Flint!
The Student Barometer
Today, you, along with all other students - both undergraduate and postgraduate (BSMS aside) - will be asked to take part in The Student Barometer. The survey, which the University has chosen to be a part of, will ask you to share details of your Sussex experience.
We already know the vast majority of our students love studying at Sussex, but we want to know what more we can do make things better.
So the University is looking to ensure that the response to this survey is as thorough and comprehensive as possible– which means getting as many students as possible to participate.
The survey, which is being fully backed by the Students’ Union, will be sent out to you today, Monday 30 October, by i-Graduate, who have been commissioned to run the survey for all of November. You will also be able to access the survey on the Sussex Mobile app, via the student news pages and via a social media campaign that will run for the next month.
In recent years this survey has been sent to international students only and the results have led directly to service improvements including significant investment in the arrival and welcome programme, and making the bank account opening process as easy as possible.
These changes have been welcomed by international students. By expanding the survey to all students we hope that more students will benefit from having the chance to share their views.
What’s more is that if you decide to participate in the Student Barometer, you could be in line to win a selection of top prizes. Each week 15 students who have already responded to the survey will be chosen at random. Those students will then get a chance to pick from the great prizes below:
• 2 x tickets to an allocated Brighton & Hove Albion Premier League football match
• 4 x tickets for a 3D screening at the Odeon
• 4 x tickets for the Sealife Centre - 'Ultimate Package'
• 4 x tickets for the i360
• £60 Pizza Express voucher
The sooner you complete it, the more chance you have of winning as we will be announcing winners each week the survey is live. The survey will be running at Sussex for four weeks from Monday 30 October.
What’s more, in addition to the weekly prizes above, all students who take part will be entered into the final draw where two lucky students will each win a £500 travel voucher with STA Travel (the world’s largest student travel agency) to spend on the holiday or flight of their choice.
