If you are a student in the final year of your undergraduate course, you will receive an email inviting you to complete the survey online. The survey is independent and run by a research company called Ipsos Mori. You will also find an NSS link on your MyBeckett profile or you can click here to take the survey. It should only take about 5-10 minutes to complete, depending on how much you have to say, and it is completely anonymous, your answers and comments are confidential and your contact details will not be used for any other purpose.
Here's what your Students' Union President, Jay Malpass-Clark has to say about it:
As a thank you for your time, all eligible students who complete their surveys online will receive a ‘Class of 2016’ t-shirt. You can also choose a charity for our university to make a £1 donation to on your behalf. These three charities have been chosen by our Students’ Union:
- Older Peoples Action in the Locality (OPAL) - a local charity that supports elderly citizens in Leeds to live independent and healthy lives.
- Shelter - a national charity that supports the homeless.
- The Red Cross - an international charity that help people in crisis around the world.
To claim your t-shirt simply print the voucher you receive on completion of the survey (don’t forget to also choose the charity you wish us to donate to) and present it to our colleagues at our Student Hubs.
