Student Feedback Survey: Results

In Term one, over 3,400 of you took part in the Student Feedback Survey, our joint University and Students’ Union (SU) survey. Thank you again to everyone who shared your views, we really appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback.  

The survey included questions about support, connections, and awareness of and engagement with key SU services. We have included key findings below:

  • 77% of students who responded felt they had either settled (back) into university well or very well in Term 1, with a further 19% feeling they have settled in ‘ok’. 4% felt they hadn’t settled well. 
  • 89% agreed they ‘feel respected by the staff I meet’.  
  • More than half of you who responded (51%) are worried about financial circumstances whilst at university, and 56% are worried about financial circumstances after University.  
  • Whilst 63% of you agreed that you feel like you have a support network here, 13% disagreed.  
  • 73% feel that you belong here, and the same percentage feel that you belong in your department. A sense of belonging can vary by department. 
  • More than three quarters (78%) rated the support from your department (in T1 2022/23) as very good or good. 
  • The mean score for students’ wellbeing/mental health in Term 1 was 6.7 (where 1 was poor and 10 was excellent), with 36% of you who responded said your WB/MH had worsened, and the same number said your WB/MH had improved since coming here for Term 1.
  • 67% of students who responded agreed they are ‘satisfied with the SU at my University’.

“Thank you to all students who took part in the Student Feedback Survey in Term one; it is invaluable to hear your views and we really appreciate you taking the time to respond. We will use your feedback to keep improving your experience this academic year and beyond, working in close partnership with the Students’ Union and keeping you informed of our plans and of opportunities for you to be involved.”

  • If you are unsure of where to go for support or advice, you can speak to your personal tutor or supervisor as they will be able to give you guidance or signpost you to the right team to help. If you live on campus, you can speak to the Residential Community Team who can help or signpost you to the relevant team.

Next steps

We will work with your Students’ Union to review your feedback and look at how we can keep improving your experience. We will share with you any planned action based on your feedback. 

At Warwick, we all contribute to the conversation and it's this on-going dialogue that helps us learn from each other. Look out for future opportunities to share your feedback including in the Term 3 Student Feedback Survey. The National Student Survey is currently open to final year students, and the Postgraduate Taught and Postgraduate Research Experience surveys will open in Term 3.
