Student Evaluation of Teaching

The following National and Internal surveys are expected to run during the following survey window period indicated (unless stated otherwise)


The systematic gathering of student opinion is an essential component of our quality assurance and quality enhancement mechanisms at Newcastle University.

We gather student opinion at every stage, from module and stage evaluations to surveys focussing on the whole degree.

This approach is informed by the Student Evaluation of Teaching Policy, and supported by the procedures for institutional and national surveys.

LTDS coordinates the University's involvement in all internal and national student opinion surveys. We assist in the dissemination of quantitative and qualitative data and report to Programme Areas, Schools, UEC, Senate, and Executive Board. We also help close the student feedback loop by identifying actions taken in response to student feedback through You Said We Listened.

Student Pulse Survey 2020

The need to change significantly many aspects of our delivery of taught programmes in 2020-21, makes getting an early view from our students on their experience with us particularly important. University Executive Board (UEB) has therefore agreed that we will ask all our taught students to undertake a short, Student Pulse Survey immediately following Teaching Week 3.

The purpose of the Student Pulse Survey is to provide you with some additional feedback from students on their experience, so that in academic units you can reflect on what is working well and what you may want to adapt/modify for the second half of the semeste rin light of the experience to date of delivering modules and programmes in a very different mode of provision. The intention is that this will augment the feedback you will already be gathering through Informal check-ins for each module, and meetings of Student Representation.
