US Student Survey Distribution 2021


Thank you for your interest in distributing the 2021 US student survey.

Achieving a suitable sample for the Student Survey is an entry requirement for the ranking. Therefore, we urge you to help us by distributing the US Student Survey to your students. This greatly increases the number of survey responses, helping to ensure your college’s eligibility for inclusion. We recommend distributing to 1000+ students, as we typically see response rates around 5-7%.

The survey collection period this year will run from November 2019 through end of May 2020. This should allow your institution to plan distribution to your students around other surveys and events in thee academic calendar.

How to take part

Survey responses will be collected for undergraduates and masters students who are over 18 years old. Institutions may choose to distribute the survey to all students (or a sub-section specified on the consent form), but ineligible responses will not be considered valid. As long as the sample is random and we achieve a minimum of 50 responses, we have no sample size requirements, though we do recommend colleges distribute to a sample of at least 1000 students, as we typically see response rates of around 5-7%.
