Perception survey invitation to staff

Posted on 18/06/2012

Dear Colleague,

I would like to invite you to take part in a survey to help us understand how the College is perceived, both internally and externally.

This survey is different from other opinion surveys that you may have completed before, and it will focus on how people see our strengths and weaknesses.  We are asking a range of audiences to share their views, including current and prospective students, alumni, staff and our broader communities.

Feedback from the perception survey will support the development of the new College strategy as part of a consultation process that will deliver a long-term plan for the next 5-10 years. The survey will help us to identify any negative perceptions that should be addressed, or any positive perceptions that could be maximised through the strategy development process. It will also help measure current perceptions against the future impact of our new College Strategy.

The survey should only take about 10-12 minutes to complete and it is being conducted on behalf of Royal Holloway by independent higher education market research firm, CarringtonCrisp.  Any information provided from your answers is anonymous and will not be used to identify any individual.

You can choose to enter in to a prize draw to win one of three, £150 Amazon vouchers by leaving your email address. Any personal details collected for the prize draw will only be used for the specific purpose of contacting the prize winners who will be notified in August when the survey is complete.  Full terms and conditions of the prize draw can be found at

Please help us to make the most of this exercise by taking part – your opinions matter and it will only take a few minutes of your time to help shape the College for many years to come.

We are also inviting staff to indicate if they wish to join a focus group later this month or in early July. If you are interested please email and you will be contacted with further details.

Thank you for taking part

Professor Paul Layzell
