Internal Student Survey off to a great start

Internal Student Survey off to a great start!

After opening on Wednesday 23rd November, the Internal Student Survey (ISS) campaign is off to a great start.

As at 9.30am on Friday 25th November, the University had 3,530 undergraduate student completions, 13% of our total undergraduate eligible students. An additional 541 completions came from our postgraduate students, which is 11% of eligible postgraduates.

So far, the top 5 departments for undergraduate completions are as follows:

  • 40% – Secondary Teacher Education
  • 26% – School of Computing, Maths & Digital Technology
  • 23% – School of Engineering
  • 19% – Primary Teacher Education
  • 17% – School of Tourism, Events & Hospitality Management and Marketing, Operations & Digital Business


The top 5 departments for postgraduate completions are as follows:

  • 50% – School of Research, Enterprise & Innovation
  • 29% – Politics & Philosophy
  • 22% – School of Tourism, Events & Hospitality Management
  • 20% – Languages and School of Computing, Maths & Digital Technology
  • 19% – Secondary Teacher Education


With just over one week until the ISS closes, here are some top tips to encourage participation:

  • Ask Personal Tutors to encourage students to take part.
  • Speak to your students at the beginning or end of timetabled sessions.
  • Tell your students (and staff) about improvements previously made in your unit or on your course as a result of student feedback. More information about ‘closing the feedback loop’ is available on the CASQE website.
  • Get social – either share the ISS posts from the University Facebook or Twitter accounts or create your own!
  • Ask your course reps if they can remind students to complete the survey.
  • Book computer labs for students to use to complete the survey, if they wish to do so.
  • Don’t forget to remind your students that there is an iPad to be won in a University-wide prize draw!

The online survey is open until 23:59 on Tuesday 6th December for most currently enrolled students on units and courses on taught Manchester Met campus-based programmes (undergraduate and postgraduate). Students can access the survey through MyMMU or via the ISS landing page, where they can find out more information about the survey and FAQs. Please note: the survey is not accessible through Moodle.
