Academic Satisfaction Survey

Originally published 2 March 2004

Open Letter to all Warwick Students from Richard Watson and Michael Whitby

The University is, for the second year, conducting the Academic Satisfaction Review. This is a survey designed to give students like yourself an opportunity to feedback independently about aspects of your teaching and learning experience at Warwick. Over the next two weeks there will be a team of students asking for a few minutes of your time to fill in the questionnaire. Please spare some time to do this as it is your chance to have your say and highlight the areas that you think Warwick is doing well in and those where you think improvements can be made.

The survey last year was used to inform a number of decisions and influence a number of changes:

A working group was set up to look in to the Personal Tutor System at Warwick and one possibility being considered is the appointment of a Senior Tutor within each academic department to oversee the running of the system.

The results were used in the Student Submission to the Quality Assurance Agency who audit the University regarding its performance in a number of areas.

The survey also informed the Undergraduate Curriculum Review which has resulted in a number of recommendations for change, including further developments in areas relating to work experience.

The results were useful and informative regarding decisions about what is to be available in the new Learning Grid facility at University House.

Thus, your say really does matter and can make a difference. If you would like more information on where to get a questionnaire or more about this survey then please email

Thank you for your help.
