The 2018 Staff Survey results

5,000 responses – thank you to everyone who took part!

Thank you to everyone who completed this year's staff survey. Your opinion matters and we look forward to using your feedback.

As you know the survey closed on Monday 26 November 2018. The final response rate is confirmed at 69 per cent, that’s 5,000 responses and over two thirds of staff. This is a strong response in comparison with the current sector average of 67 per cent.

We are also pleased that over 450 graduate teaching assistants and casual workers have taken the time to give us their views. As you know, this is the first time that we have asked them to complete the staff survey and we are encouraged by the response we have received.

Here are the final response rates at University, Faculty and Professional Services level. We do not yet have final numbers for department level.
