Survey Live: 14 February – 6 March 2023
Each participating institution selects a specific three-week period during February and March to open the survey for their students. This allows the national survey to take account of local events and other demands on students’ time in order to increase the benefit of the survey at local level – “national survey, local impact“.

Most impactful use of the survey data for TU Dublin
35% participation rate over 5000 Students having their Say!
Highlight’s from the TUDublin Survey
Our Students love the Collaborative learning and Teamwork Style of our University! They like the practical industry informed teaching and labs, and the real world experience of our lecturing Staff. What they would like us to do better! More Interactive Classes, More industry visits and connections, and more continuous assessment…
How do we Get that 35%?
Firstly - Partnership and Communication: Informing Students what the survey is and working with the Student Union to raise awareness of the survey and its value
Since 2013 TUDublin and The Student Union have worked closely to increase the awareness and understanding of the survey. Sharing the Information is key; in the last number of years we have produced Infographics which summarise the information that matters most to Students. This is circulated through the university E-zine. It’s presented in topics that really matter to Students, Feedback, Facilities, Wellbeing and Belonging. We not only indicate how the university is doing, we tell students what we are doing to make thing better!
Secondly - Teamwork and Time, Simple, clear information delivered by the whole University ‘What’s it all about! Who, What and When and What next
The whole University has to get on Board. We produce a clear plan, dates and details and circulate, to all Staff from IS and Public Affairs to Lecturers on the ground. Clear simple messaging, When, How and who? The power of the Lecturer has been critical to our success, along with our Class reps, a strong communal voice asking students to take part. A clear Communications Strategy has really helped achieving our targets. If you would like more information please contact one of our Comms Team!
Thirdly - Data is only useful if it’s used, sounds simple but it’s true
Using the data, and acting on it! If Students are providing feedback the University needs to Listen and Act. And Students need to Know and see real change… At the university we Provide Student and Staff Infographics and Ezine’s. But we also carry out focus groups and feed the Data to our committees, so decisions can be taken based on Student feedback If you would like more information on Actions taken on our campuses please contact our Comms team on Site!
