UKES, the HEA's undergraduate engagment survey, provides robust insights to help institutions identify the most appropriate teaching and learning interventions that will help to improve the student experience.
The UKES 2016 survey of over 23,000 undergraduates is the only major undergraduate survey in the UK higher education sector that measures students’ engagement with their studies.

Results from UKES 2016 show that while overall 88% of undergraduates say they find their course challenging, just 51% reported that they have strongly developed specific skills such as CV writing or career planning to help them get a job.
The report provides a comprehensive picture of how undergraduates engage with their studies, how they spend their time, and how they develop their skills accordingly.

Engage with UKES and be TEF-ready
UKES can be used to evidence teaching quality as part of a Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) provider submission. The TEF year two specification encourages the inclusion of information on student engagement, specifically identifying UKES as a tool to demonstrate this.
Results can be broken down by a range of course and demographic factors, so you can target enhancement where it is most needed. And with TEF moving to subject level from year three, UKES can also provide you with the depth of analysis required for inclusion in your submission.
Turn insight into advantage with HEA student surveys
UKES provides robust insights to help institutions identify the most appropriate teaching and learning interventions that will help to improve the student experience. It is one of four student surveys we deliver to drive improvement in student learning. All have been developed in consultation with the sector and benefit from high response rates among institutions and their students.
