Qualtrics survey tool

Qualtrics is a powerful online survey tool available to all College staff, and students, and gives you the capability to build and distribute your own surveys as part of course/research/administrative needs.

Requested by the Student Union and delivered by the Student-Centric team of ICT, the goal was to offer a College-wide survey platform that would enable you to create top quality surveys and improve the student experience.

Important Changes to Qualtrics

Qualtrics has launched the new Qualtrics Insight Platform, geared toward easier navigation and a more streamlined workflow and user interface for creating survey projects. Explore the new Qualtrics and learn more.

You’ll be able to switch between the current Research Suite and the new Qualtrics Insight Platform up until June 2016. At the end of the preview period in June, your account will transition permanently to the new platform. Please note that:

  • You can access all your existing reports except any customised reports that you created will no longer be accessible after the transition. For this reason, it is recommended that you download a copy of your existing reports before switching to the new platform. Get directions for downloading and exporting reports.
  • All active surveys will be unaffected.

For more information on Qualtrics, Contact the ICT Service Desk. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out through the  ‘Help & Feedback’ Qualtrics Support within the platform or contact the Qualtrics Support team at +44 (0)20 3808 3311 /, otherwise, please check the Qualtrics FAQs.
