Your experiences, observations, and thoughts are extremely valuable to both the EPC and organisations that we work with. This is where we host our surveys.
Thank you to everyone who responds to to the EPC’s annual engineering enrolment survey. Last year’s results were shared at the EPC Recruitment and Admissions Forum and on the EPC website.
Members are now invited to download the 2022 survey template for completion and return to firstname.lastname@example.org by 31st October 2022. Enrolment survey contacts will receive a link to the survey template by email on 3rd October 2022 and other members are also invited to respond.
As a thank you, all those who complete the survey will be entered into a draw (on 7th November) for a free ticket to the first EPC Recruitment and Admissions Forum in three years, to be held on 7th December at Arden University’s brand-new site in Leeds.
The timetable for the 2022 survey is outlined below.
|3rd October 2022||Survey opens||Details on how to complete the survey will be sent to your university’s EPC representative and enrolment survey contact. If you would like to get involved, please contact us.|
|31st October 2022||Main survey deadline||We know that our members have different enrolment timescales and processes so there is a four-week window in which you are invited to submit your response. We do understand that enrolment numbers may not be completely stable at this stage but ask that you provide your best estimates based on your latest information.|
|4th November 2022
|Survey closes to all members||For the small number of you who use your central services (who are likely to be prioritising the HESA data collections for the previous cycle) to support this process, we can extend a slightly later deadline to allow a few days after the HESA final commit dates. Please let us know if this applies to you.|
|4th November 2022 to 14th November 2021||EPC data checking||In case there are any queries we need to raise with you, or de-duplications or data management issues at our end.|
|7th December 2021||Launch of results||We will launch the Engineering Enrolment Survey results at the EPC Recruitment and Admissions Forum. More information and booking will be available shortly.|
|14th December 2021||
|The results will be published on the EPC website in blog format. For the first time this year we will also provide a recording of the survey results to enable as many members as possible to benefit.|
Every year, the collective results give us all a first glance at engineering enrolments long before official data becomes available. Our members have told us that that the data is used in many ways, from enabling individual members and departments to understand their experience relative to the sector, to evidence-based decision making on new courses to offer. In the last couple of years, this insight has been more important than ever.
As always, the more responses we receive, the more robust the wider insight we can provide. We hope we can depend on our members to respond again this year.
