QM has been named as the best university in London for student experience, according to the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey 2013, published on Thursday 25 April. QM, which rose from 50th place to 37th this year, was ranked ahead of all of our London competitors.
Almost 12,000 full time undergraduate students across the country took part in the survey and were asked to rate their experience in over 20 different aspects of student life, such as high quality staff, well-structured courses, social life and community atmosphere, Students’ Union and societies, facilities, support and welfare and industry/employer connections.

Surveys at QM
The experience of final year undergraduates is also being surveyed as part of the annual National Student Survey (NSS) which all UK universities participate in. The NSS is an important survey as it gives students the opportunity to tell us what they have enjoyed about their time at QM, and where we can make improvements.
As a result of feedback from previous QM students, many positive changes have been made, such as making exam timetables and results available online, rolling out wi-fi access, launching QM Plus virtual learning environment, and buying more PC’s.
However, there is always more that we can do to improve, so if you are a final year undergraduate student and haven’t completed the survey yet, please considering doing so before it closes on Tuesday 30 April. It takes just ten minutes and can be completed here: www.thestudentsurvey.com
For postgraduate students, the Postgraduate Research Experience Survey (PRES) and Postgraduate Taught Experience Surveys (PTES) are also taking place at the moment. Again, this is an excellent way of telling us about your experience as a postgraduate student, what worked and where we can improve. You will have been sent an email to your QM account, containing your unique link to complete the survey. You can find out more about the surveys here.
