The National Student Survey is launched on Monday 28 January and will run until 30 April 2013.
To encourage you to complete the survey the University is offering students entry into a prize draw to win an iPad by completing the survey and entering the draw before the closing date of midnight on 31 March 2013.

We value the feedback we get from you, as this helps us ensure that the student experience at Aberdeen is a positive one. Some of the actions that we have taken in response to comments made by students in previous surveys include:
- introducing MyAberdeen, an online learning resource to assist teaching, information provision and student feedback
- developing a student feedback website to support staff in providing the best possible feedback to their students
- holding focus groups with students to strengthen channels of communication
- developing action plans for all schools to engage with students' teaching and learning needs
- introducing surveys in earlier years to improve our means of feedback from students
As a result of feedback in previous years we have also:
- Introduced the feedback framework to allow clear, full and helpful feedback to students as soon after the submission of work as possible
- Opened a new InfoHub to support students in their studies and University life
- Developed enhanced induction for new students, including a new students website to allow a more helpful transition to the University environment
- Developed a set of Graduate Attributes which we would expect an Aberdeen graduate to achieve and provided a new ACHIEVE website to enable students to monitor their progress towards achieving these
- The University has continued to develop the STAR (Students Taking Active Roles) Award to recognise those who have undertaken roles outside of their academic studies, in order to develop their transferable skills and competencies. The University continues to facilitate work experience and work placements opportunities, including in research as well as social responsibility projects and community-based projects and overseas study.
- Implemented a review of the academic timetable as part of curriculum reform
