A central theme in the university's strategic plan is building on our achievements and to provide a highly engaged learning experience for every one of our students by enhancing the student experience. Each year, all students that are due to graduate are invited to participate in the UL Student Exit Survey (based on the UK’s National Student Survey). This survey gives students the opportunity to reflect on their time at UL and give feedback on their unique student experiences. The University's Executive Committee Quality Committee approved the suspension of the exit survey in 2020, pending the review of student survey mechanisms as part of the StELA project.

In addition to their overall satisfaction with UL and their course, students are asked how satisfied they are with each of the following areas:

  • Teaching and Learning
  • Assessment and Feedback
  • Academic Support
  • (Course) Organisation and Management
  • Learning Resources
  • Personal Development
  • Work Placements

The results of these surveys are taken very seriously by UL and resources are invested in the areas identified as most in need of improvement.
