Survey

NSS (February - April)

The NSS is an annual survey of final year undergraduates in the UK. It is a nationally recognised independent survey, inviting students to give their opinions about their course experience.

Graduate Attributes (16 February - 27 March 2022)

The University of Aberdeen 2040 strategy is a series of twenty commitments that link teaching and research to create graduating students who will be ready to thrive in workplaces of the future.  Underpinning the Aberdeen 2040 Education Strategy will be a set of Graduate Attributes and Skills developed in partnership with key stakeholders.

As part of this process, the University Education Committee (UEC) has established a Working Group to undertake a consultation with our community of staff, students and external partners to gauge views and attitudes towards the use of graduate attributes and skills across all stakeholders.

The survey consists of approximately 15 questions (depending on your responses) and should only take 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

Graduate Outcomes - Your Future Shapes Our Future (Graduates)

Graduate Outcomes is the biggest UK annual social survey capturing the perspectives and current status of recent graduates. All graduates who complete a Degree Programme will be asked to take part in the survey 15 months after they finish their studies, giving current and future students the information they need to make informed choices and to help the University of Aberdeen evaluate, enhance and promote our Degree Programmes. Taking part in the survey gives you a voice.

You will receive your survey invitation around 15 months after you have completed your degree. It will be sent via email and text from Graduate Outcomes or GradOutcome, and not the University of Aberdeen. Keep your eyes peeled and make sure you use your chance to influence the future of education. Be part of the picture.
