UAL Unit Evaluations
Unit Evaluations are short online surveys which may be used by course teams to allow you to give feedback on your course units, helping us to make positive changes and respond to your feedback while you are still studying with us.
One week before the end of the specific unit, you and your fellow students will receive an email asking you to respond to up to 10 short questions about the unit. The questions cover a range of topics, including: teaching, assessment, guidance, academic support and the availability of resources.
You just need to open the link in the email on your laptop, PC, tablet or mobile device; the survey will only take a few minutes to complete. Each survey will be open for two weeks.
Giving useful feedback
We have compiled some advice on giving constructive feedback.
Unit Evaluations FAQ
Who sees my feedback?
Your Course Leader will receive the full set of results including your comments. The College and University will also receive reports to help identify, monitor and act on trends.
Is it anonymous?
All unit evaluations are anonymous.
The software we use to manage the surveys works by generating random, anonymous links to the survey for the number of students we tell it are on that unit. The software then sends those links at random to the email addresses we've entered. There is no way for anyone to know which link was sent to who, or which student gave that feedback.
Will I get a response to my feedback?
Your Course Leader will post a response to each unit evaluation on your course Moodle site, highlighting where they think they might be able to make positive changes to your course.
How will my feedback be used?
In addition to your Course Leader we will use your feedback to identify areas for improvement, and share good practice across the University. Your feedback will feed into our annual monitoring processes, helping us to reflect on course design and teaching, and how we can improve your experience as a student at UAL.
What other opportunities do I have to feed back?
Unit Evaluations are just one way of giving us your feedback. There are many opportunities for you to help improve your course, such as meetings with your Course Reps, joining the SU, your Programme Committee and, for final year students, the National Student Survey.
