RSU Big Survey 2024 Now Open

Win a share of £500 by giving us your feedback in the annual RSU Big Survey.

The Students' Union's mission is to 'represent, support, and develop students from all backgrounds at Roehampton and enable them to have the best possible university experience.' But how do we know we're achieving this? Well, every year we invite all students to share their thoughts and experiences on their university experience, and the services we provide.

We want to know what we're doing well and getting things right, but crucially, where we can improve and adapt our work to meet student needs. That’s why every year we run our annual RSU Big Survey so we can make decisions that promote effective change that are directly based on student feedback.

What is it?

Every year we ask standard questions about your experiences using our services which help guide our plans for the next academic year. Importantly, we use the RSU Big Survey as a platform to also look at other issues that might be impacting your student experience at Roehampton. Previous Big Surveys have included questions about the cost-of-living, events & activities, and student support.  

The insights and data from these have been integral in providing the University with the information they need to make positive changes in these areas of the student experience..

What are we doing this year?

This year we are using the RSU Big Survey to look ahead to the future. We’re coming to the end of our strategic plan and this means we need to reflect on the work we do and services we deliver while understanding what you as students want and need from a modern students’ union.

Your feedback plays a huge role not only in helping to improve your overall university experience, but also in determining our wider decision-making process as a Union. So do the sensible thing and get answering!

Take the Survey

Cash prizes

This year we’re offering up some great cash prizes as an extra incentive to give us your views. Three lucky winners will receive £100 cash straight into their bank account with four £50 prizes also up for grabs. This means we’re giving £500 to students who participate this year. To be eligible for a cash prize, you need to complete the entire survey. We will be drawing and announcing winners while the survey is open, so the earlier you fill it out the more chances you have to win!

Next steps

As a move to be more transparent about what we do with the feedback we receive, we will be publishing the results of the survey to our website and social media accounts once analysis has been complete. Our goal is to give you more regular, digestible updates on what we’re doing with your feedback and it’s being used to shape your university experience. So look out for it in the coming months!

How long will the survey be open?

The survey will close at 13:00 on Friday 31 May.
