Survey Tools for Students

Microsoft Forms

Microsoft Forms allows you to create surveys in Office 365 and either share them to authenticated users within your organisation, or with anonymous respondents anywhere. Use the LinkedIn Learning resources to watch training videos on how to create surveys.

Qualtrics

Qualtrics is a sophisticated tool to assist in building surveys. It enables you to create simple or sophisticated surveys with a full range of question types and visual controls to make your survey more interesting and interactive. Rather than using (free) Survey Monkey which limits the number of questions, respondents and doesn’t support exporting your results for analysis, Qualtrics allows you to quickly export your data to Excel (or SPSS).
Students
To obtain a Qualtrics account navigate using the link above and click create a new account. You will have to use your UCLan email address (e.g. @uclan.ac.uk) to be able to create an account.
Further help and instructions for information on setting up (updated November 2020).

For more information about this resource please contact Belinda Hornby on 01772 893737 or email BFHornby@uclan.ac.uk

Survey Monkey

Survey Monkey is not supported by the university as a central subscription would not work in our network environment. If the only tool you can use is Survey Monkey you will need to purchase your own personal subscription which will make you responsible for maintaining your own backups of surveys from their servers.

Other Software

While we'd love to be able to provide you with the full range of software that is on the University network for use on your home computers, unfortunately, due to Licensing regulations, that's not possible. It is possible to get some software for student use directly from the supplier such as Autodesk and Adobe and single use copies of applications can be purchased from most online stores that sell computer software.

Microsoft

All current students studying at UCLan are able to use Microsoft Office 365 for FREE via their UCLan account. This service includes:

  • Office 365 ProPlus – Install the latest Microsoft Office software at home on up to 5 devices - including PCs, Macs, tablets (including iPad) and smartphones, absolutely free (for as long as you remain a UCLan student).
  • OneDrive for Business – Every UCLan student now gets a huge 1 Terabyte of personal storage space in the cloud (in addition to the 50GB email space you already have).
  • Office Online – Create and edit Word, OneNote, PowerPoint, and Excel documents from any device’s web browser and save to your OneDrive for Business space.
