The SU is committed to understanding the lives of our students and their experiences at university. In order to do this, we are involved in a number of different research programmes with different research partners.

Student Life Pulse with Alterline

The SU are proud members of the Student Life Pulse, an online survey specially developed for student unions in the UK.

The study will track the experience of our students throughout the academic year, as well as their perceptions and experiences of the Union itself. We’ll use the information collected to develop and plan our services for the future and act as the voice of our students.

Between October and June you will receive an email inviting you to complete the online survey. We want to hear the views of as many of our students as possible, so we hope you can spare a few minutes to help us with this important research!

The research is being administered by Alterline, an independent research agency. Alterline is an accredited research company which follows all guidelines for data privacy and security. It only has enough information about you to conduct the research and it will not keep any of your personal information after the research is finished. Any information you disclose will be treated in the strictest confidence and the results are anonymised so no answers are attributable to any individuals.
