The UK Engagement Survey (UKES) is an annual national survey open to non-final year undergraduates. Rather than just asking you about your satisfaction, this survey takes a different approach – it asks how much time you spend on different types of activities that support your learning.

“The UKES is different to other National surveys as it is a chance to develop your programme whilst you are still studying here. It allows you to reflect on how you study and think about what might help you develop your studies in future. The responses will help us work with you to make changes that will improve what the University of Birmingham does in future and to keep doing the things that support your learning.”

UKES is an opportunity for you to tell the University what needs to change to help you get the most out of your studies. Your feedback will feed directly into changes to teaching and learning at Birmingham which will benefit you before you graduate.
