Research and Insight

Improving student experiences through research 

Here you'll find all the research work the SU has done in collaboration with students, with the aims of raising student voices and improving student experience.

By conducting research we strive to develop our understanding of student experiences and concerns whilst at university. We then use this insight to work with UEA to make positive changes that will impact students, whilst also improving our own services so that students get the best from them.


In this section we have:

Every year, the SU runs a survey of all its members covering all aspects of uea(su) activity.

This is an opportunity for students to get involved, voice their opinions and shape change at uea(su).

The last annual survey was open November-December 2018. Results are currently being analysed. The next survey will be in Fall 2019.

Every couple of weeks throughout the academic year, SU staff go out onto campus to talk to all students about key issues.

The aim is to ensure that all students are represented at the SU and that students directly impact changes that are made across campus.

The latest topic we've been talking to students about is extra-curricular activities on campus.
