Have your say in a survey about leisure provision at Coventry University, and be entered into a draw to win one of three £200 Amazon vouchers.

Sport England, in partnership with the independent research company TNS-BMRB, has developed an online leisure survey for Higher Education institutions in England. The leisure survey will help Universities to understand more about what students do in their free time and about student satisfaction with the leisure activities provided at Coventry University.

Students will be chose at random so if you receive an email regarding the questionnaire we encourage you to fill it in. Your input to this survey is important and highly valued. It does not matter whether you currently do a lot of leisure activities or not, we’re interested in talking to a range of students. We want to understand what is really important to you and use this to help drive and shape the offer provided by Coventry University – so please have your say!
