Undergraduates raise thousands for local charities

Final year undergraduates have raised more than £4,000 for charity by taking part in this year’s National Student Survey.

Every year the University donates £1 for each final year Liverpool undergraduate student who completes the National Student Survey

This year the money was split between the Young Person’s Advisory Service (YPAS) and local Community Interest Company (CIC) Thrive which aims to connect young people to employers right across the Liverpool City Region.

The National Student Survey closed to responses at the end of April with results expected to be published this summer.

Prize draw winners

As part of this year’s survey, final year undergraduates were also entered into a prize draw for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

This year’s winners include medical student Faye Platt who won a Nintendo Switch games console, and anatomy and human biology student Manon Maguire, who won a Polaroid Now instant camera.

Congratulations to all our prize draw winners!

What is the National Student Survey?

The National Student Survey is conducted annually. It is aimed at final year undergraduate students and is commissioned by the Office for Students (OfS) and administered by independent research agency Ipsos MORI.

The NSS is part of a quality assurance system to generate more detailed information about teaching quality. The results and feedback help universities to make changes and improvements, as well as giving prospective students information which can help them decide where and what to study.
