Feedback and Surveys

The Department of History actively seeks feedback from our students about how we are doing. We encourage an honest and open dialogue so that we can work together to create a vibrant and inclusive community. If you have comments or suggestions on how to improve overall student experience in the Department, you can use the SSLC or contact the Student Voice Lead.  

Module Feedback

Regular feedback from students plays an important part in planning modules and developing teaching skills within the department. In order to ensure that students can make a direct impact on the ways in which they are being taught, every tutor asks students to complete a questionnaire at the end of the first term and circulates a written report on this feedback prior to discussing with the students concerned any resulting changes. At the end of the module tutors will circulate a second questionnaire, so that they can take account of student comments in any revisions they make for the next year (in core, team-taught, modules these processes will usually be organised not by seminar tutors but by the module director). The Department also operates a Peer Dialogue on teaching process and the module feedback is reviewed as part of this process.

If you have any questions on module feedback please ask your Year Director.



National Student Survey

The National Student Survey (NSS) has been conducted by Ipsos MORI annually since 2005. It gathers opinions from final year undergraduates on their satisfaction with their courses. The NSS is your opportunity to give entirely anonymous feedback about your course, which we use to improve our teaching and the courses we offer. Results are publicly available to prospective students, their families and advisors to help make informed choices of where and what to study.

For more information about the NSS, please visit the Warwick National Student Survey website or contact the Student Voice Lead.


University Surveys

The University of Warwick regularly surveys students to gain their views on teaching, learning, and a range of other topics. For more information please visit


Graduate Outcomes Survey

The Graduate Outcomes survey collects information on the activities and perspectives of graduates approximately 15 months after completion. The survey covers UG, PGT and PGR students, home and overseas, full- and part-time. It is conducted by the Higher Education Statistics Agency and is the biggest annual social survey in the UK. The results provide an insight into the career destinations of recent graduates, which shapes both the delivery of services in Higher Education as well as influencing the government's understanding of the needs of the graduate labour market.
