How do you use technology at USW? | Take part

The Digital Capabilities Survey has been designed to gain a greater understanding of your digital skills, experiences and expectations. It's not just how good you are on a computer but how you use technology to enhance your learning experience, from watching a documentary online to using assistive technology. Your feedback will help us make informed decisions when it comes to improving the University through investing in the right technology and support. Your feedback from past surveys has resulted in the development a range of support resources for Office 365 and Digital Literacy.

The survey takes no longer than 10 minutes to complete and by providing feedback, you can help change the university experience for the better. Before completing the student digital survey, please read our terms and conditions


Please note, off-campus students who are studying with a partner college should check guidance and communication from their college, about local attendance, assessment and teaching arrangements
