United Kingdom Engagement Survey

We want to make sure students have the best possible experience while studying at the University of Bath. To do that we need to know what you think we are doing well and what we can do better.

The United Kingdom Engagement Survey (UKES) is a national survey inviting students to comment on their engagement with different kinds of learning activities. The questionnaire takes around 20 minutes to complete.

Why you should take part

This is your chance to tell us about how you engage with learning on your course, work with others, and take part in activities that help you to learn. It is a chance to reflect on how you study and what might help your studies in the future.

The results help us make changes that will improve what we do and to keep doing the things that are working well. We hope that this will help improve your learning outcomes and those of students like you in the future.

We can also compare your experience against similar students at other institutions to see if we are supporting your learning as we should.
