Three University of Worcester students have received Nexus 7 tablets after completing the annual National Student Survey (NSS).
The NSS is open to all final year students, giving them the opportunity to express their opinions on their institution and course. This year, all University of Worcester respondents were entered into a prize draw after completing the survey online.
Rumi Choudhury, a student on the Primary Initial Teacher Education course, Early Years, said: “Initially, I wondered whether or not I would have the time to complete the survey as I was juggling University work and placements, but I felt it was important to share my views about the course.
“It was simple and quick to complete and all the questions were very relevant and important. As final year students, our answers and our views are important and the University does look closely at them and makes changes where possible – as I have seen first-hand.
“I’d advise all final year students to complete the NSS and give themselves the chance to win a fantastic prize, as I did.”
Another of the prize winners, Sociology student Georgia Sutton Hitch, added: “It’s great that the University really value the opinions of students and provides such great prizes to encourage students to participate in the NSS.
“It’s an excellent way to provide the University with feedback, so that they can implement changes which will benefit future students. I’m very pleased to have been one of the three prize winners.”
Looking ahead, Ipsos Mori, the administrators of the NSS, are now running their annual competition to design the artwork for the 2015 NSS. The competition is open to students, and the winning design will be developed into a commercial campaign to be rolled out to institutions across the country in December 2014.
The winner will also receive a one-week work placement with the design firm hat-trick.
