Last chance to win a year of Netflix and £500 Amazon Vouchers by completing the Trendence Survey!

Everyone in  the Bournemouth University Careers Service needs your feedback to continue to give you excellent careers support. This year we’re taking part in the trendence survey, one of the UK’s largest student surveys, and their reports will tell us how satisfied you are with your careers support and the wider university experience, as well as which employers you aspire to work for. Take the survey and you’ll be giving us valuable feedback!

In return for your help, trendence are giving away…

  • £100 of Netflix Gift Cards (given away every week!)
  • Two x £500 Amazon vouchers

Tell us what you think of your university course, which employers you like, and how you’re feeling about your future career. trendence will continue to use the results to put together research reports to help universities and employers across the UK, so that they know what kind of job you want.

It only takes 15 minutes (and you can take it on your mobile!)
