Five lucky Wrexham Glyndwr University students got their hands on £50 in cash after completing this year’s National Student Survey.
The winning recipients were drawn at random by independent research group Ipsos MORI, who carry out the annual survey which sees final year undergraduate students rate their university experience.
Prizes are awarded to students at each UK institution which takes part in the survey. The winners from Wrexham Glyndwr University this year were Lowri Tulk, Lisette Armour, Richard Griffiths, Neil Evans and Wendy Pitt.
26-year-old Neil, from Coedpoeth, studied Criminology and Criminal Justice. He said: “I gave positive feedback on my time at Wrexham Glyndwr University. I enjoyed my three years here – everything ran smoothly and it was a great all round experience.”
Broadcasting, Journalism and Media Communications student Lowri Tulk, 21, from Hightown, said: “I commented positively on what was a fantastic experience. I needed quite a bit of help with my degree and the support was always there from the lecturers straight away.”
The NSS asks 27 questions relating to eight aspects of students’ experience while at university, covering teaching, learning, assessment and feedback, academic support, organisation and management, learning resources, student voice and the learning community.
Students are also asked to rate overall satisfaction with the quality of their course.
Louise Medlam, Academic Registrar at Wrexham Glyndwr University, said: “The NSS is important to the university as one indicator of students’ experience on their programme with us.
“Their feedback helps us to shape the future direction of our curriculum and the resources we provide for their learning.”
Nearly 3 million students took part in the NSS this year across the UK, with students at 357 eligible institutions involved. The results of the survey will be published later in the summer.
