We are keen to capture your experience of being a student at BGU and therefore encourage you to complete one of the surveys below.

National Student Survey

Are you an undergraduate student in your final year? The National Student Survey (NSS) is your chance to feedback on your student experience during your time here at university. It’s an independently run survey asking final year undergraduate students across the country about their time at university. Your opinions are anonymous and ask you to reflect on what you liked about your course and what you think we could do to improve things here at Bishop Grosseteste.

To help prospective students make informed decisions of where and what to study, the analysis from the survey is made publicly available. Your voice is hugely important and could help to shape the future of your course and university.

Closing date for the NSS is 30th April 2023.


BGU Student Satisfaction Survey

All students can have their voice heard by completing our very own BGU Student Satisfaction Survey (known as ‘bee-gus’). The survey is done annually and students can rate their satisfaction with all aspects of life at BGU. Although you will be asked to submit your B number to access the survey (use it as both your username and password), rest assured it is also anonymous and data is cleansed from the system once it has been collated and analysed. Please note, once the BGUSSS is completed it cannot be amended at a future date!

You will have been sent a survey invitation email directly from ‘BISHOPG’ to complete the BGUSSS It should take 10-20 minutes.

To access the BGUSSS click here.

Closing date for the BGUSSS is 30th April 2023.

FAQs

You need to be a final year student to participate in the NSS so you will need to complete an eligibility check by providing your full name and date of birth, as well as your student ID number.

Once we have analysed the responses from both the NSS and BGUSSS we can draw conclusions regarding how we are doing. Here are some key departmental changes that have been made as a result of last year's results.

Yes, both the surveys are anonymous. BGU receives no information about which students have completed the NSS survey. Whilst student ‘B’ numbers are used on the BGUSSS this is only to pre-populate some fields so you don’t have to, for example what course you are on.

For the NSS the University is required to pass details onto Ipsos who collate all the survey information. Your data is only used for the survey and removed from their systems as soon as the survey is over.

For the BGUSSS, your data is held on our internal systems only whilst we collate and analyse the survey data. We destroy your data after the survey results have been analysed.

You could be contacted by Ipsos up to 9pm at night by telephone as well as email. Timings regarding the NSS are under the external control of Ipsos and not BGU. CELT may e-mail you reminders to complete the BGUSSS and/or contact you to invite you to events where you will be asked to complete the BGUSSS.

A few students in their final year may not be able to complete the NSS survey this may be because:-

1. You are on a top-up year, you will have been eligible to complete the NSS in the final year of your Foundation Degree.
2. You intercalated previously, you might already have been eligible to complete the NSS whilst you were intercalated.

In either case, please complete BGUSSS instead as your views are still very important to us at an institutional level.

If you are currently intercalated you may be eligible – if so, this will be your only opportunity to complete the NSS

Please complete both NSS and BGUSSS.
