The King’s Student Wellbeing Survey is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students from Thursday 2 – Friday 31 March.

What’s involved?

The King’s Student Wellbeing Survey is open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students and is our way of measuring your wellbeing and developing strategies and initiatives to best support you.

You’ll be asked a set of carefully selected questions related to your time at King's, your daily routines, quality of life, social connections, and general wellbeing.  We’ll use the data to gain a greater understanding of the overall wellbeing of students at King’s, measure the success of our current interventions and help develop further initiatives to support you.

The survey takes no longer than 10 minutes to complete. As a thank you, we’ll give you a free hot drink credit for King’s Food worth £2.75, along with the chance to win a King’s hoodie!

What is the survey for?

Your contribution will help us build a full and accurate picture of how our current students are feeling. It’ll allow us to measure the impact of our services and help us to focus improvements in the right areas.

We’re committed to significantly investing in our mental health and wellbeing services.

Our Student Mental Health & Wellbeing Strategy has driven many positive changes over the last few years, such as the introduction of Faculty Wellbeing Advisors and King's Counselling Online, a 24/7 video call and telephone service that ensures you're supported outside normal working hours.

Is this survey the same as the National Student Survey (NSS)?

This is a separate survey from the National Student Survey (NSS) and Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES). Unlike these national surveys, the King’s Student Wellbeing Survey is unique to our community.

We use the data from all three surveys to inform our whole-university approach to student mental health and wellbeing, and to understand how students from across King’s are feeling.

About the King’s Student Wellbeing Survey

How will my data be used?

Your personal information won't be identifiable in reports. We may use the data you provide to monitor and audit the way we support different people.

Wellbeing and identity are inextricably linked, and we want to ensure we’re meeting the needs of all our students, regardless of who they are or where they come from. For this reason, you’ll be asked to provide your K number in the survey. This is optional, but including it will allow us to conduct a demographic analysis of the data in a way that retains your privacy.

Important to know: Data which personally identifies you will not be shared with any professional services team or academic staff, including your personal tutor or supervisor.

What if I take the survey then change my mind?

If you change your mind about taking part, you can email us ( to get your information removed from the survey.

Withdrawing from the survey will not affect you in any way. You can withdraw your data at any time up to the end of Friday 7 April 2023.

If you do change your mind, we won't keep the information you have already given to us.

Where can I find support?

We hope that participating in the survey will give you an opportunity to reflect on how you're doing. While reflection can be a positive process, it can also bring up powerful emotions which may be difficult to deal with.

If you need support, contact your Faculty Wellbeing Advisor, PhD Supervisor or Personal Tutor.

You can find out more about the ways we support your wellbeing by visiting our Health & wellbeing category on Student Services Online, with lots of tips and guidance from our support services.

We have also included some information about support available to you at the end of the survey.

What happens after the survey?

Once the survey has closed, the data from the responses will be aggregated, analysed and compiled into a report. The report will be shared with relevant teams across the university and used to improve the support available to you.

We’re committed to investing in your wellbeing and are always looking to improve the support we offer. By helping us build a picture of student wellbeing at King’s, you’ll be helping us develop a whole university approach where all aspects of your experience impact positively on your wellbeing.
