The University has awarded iPads to Classical Civilisation student Tim Wisson and Psychology student Victoria Torren for their participation in the National Student Survey.

Running since January and with just three weeks to go- the survey gives students a chance to shout about their Roehampton experience- and there is still an iPod touch up for grabs for those who have yet to participate!

Run by independent research company Ipsos Mori, eligible students will be asked about their experience of teaching, assessment and feedback; academic support; organisation and management; learning resources and personal development when the survey opens, from January 2012 until April 30.

Winner Tim said he was shocked by the win: “I couldn’t believe it when I heard that I had been selected. I really appreciate that Roehampton is taking student feedback seriously and continue to enjoy my experience at the University. Now, I just have to get my mom to show me how to use the iPad,” he joked.

Victoria said she was thrilled with her new gadget, having filled out the survey itself on an iPad in the library: “The Library here is like a home away from home for me! I am always in there, and one of my favourite things about the library is the way they welcome feedback. Whenever I have an idea or an issue- you are always heard and they actually care.”

The survey takes less than 5 minutes to complete, and affects how Roehampton is rated in national league tables and how schools and employers view us. The results give us the chance to celebrate our successes, and highlight areas you think could be given a boost.
