Two students groups were awarded for their participation

Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU) recently completed its annual Survey Week, encouraging students to participate in two surveys aimed at measuring student satisfaction with all aspects of life at the university. The surveys included the BGUSS, the university's own Student Satisfaction Survey, and the National Student Survey (NSS), which is independently run and asks final year undergraduate students across the country about their time at university.

To incentivise student participation in the surveys, the university offered £100 to the student group with the best turnout. This year, the award was split between two clubs. The Dr Who Club and the Men's Football Club were the two societies that had the best turnout at Survey Week, and they were recognised for their participation, with each receiving £50 to support their group.

Men’s Football Club President Jon Smith said: "We’re really pleased to have been awarded the £50 for our participation in the student surveys. It was quick and easy to take part, and now we’ve got some extra funds to purchase equipment and kit for the lads."

The society's Vice President Lewis Underhill added: "As a student society, we recognise the importance of giving feedback. We're looking forward to seeing the positive changes as a result of the surveys."

Pro-Vice Chancellor Rob Boast presented the groups with the award and reiterated the value of students sharing their opinions. He said: "It's great to see so many students getting involved in Survey Week. These surveys are important because they help us to identify areas where we can improve and ensure that we continue to provide an excellent student experience.

"Congratulations to the Dr Who Club and the Men's Football Club for their outstanding participation and thank you all the students who took part in the surveys."
