National Student Survey 2016: how you can help

This year DIT will once again join with all the higher education institutions in Ireland to participate in the Survey of Student Engagement 2016. For students in DIT, the survey will be open for responses for a three week period, from Monday, the 15th February 2016 until Friday, the 04th March 2016.

Students from first and final year undergraduate programmes and all postgraduate taught programmes have been emailed by DIT with an invitation to take the survey.

The Student Survey is a high priority for us as it provides invaluable information on the DIT student experience and will feed into how things are done in the future.

In 2014 8% of our students responded

In 2015 24% of our students responded

Our target student response rate this year is 50%.

What you can do to help

Evidence shows that students tend to respond more favourably to requests to complete the survey from people they know, including their lecturers, heads of department and administrators, as well as their fellow students.

So we are calling on all of our staff across the Institute to encourage our students to complete Student Survey 2016 wherever possible.
