Student Opinion Counts (SOC)

Student Opinion Counts (SOC) is the biggest and most influential piece of student research that TUSU carries out. The short, simple four-part survey runs every other year and gives all students, regardless of their relationship with the SU or their background, a chance to tell us about:

  • The good and bad aspects of your student life. 
  • What you think the University gets right and what it can improve on.
  • How much you know about how the Students' Union is led and run along with the impact you think we make for students.
  • Your usage of and opinion of our various services, events, facilities, sports clubs, and societies.
