Survey tools

Various groups across the university will wish to run surveys at different times during the academic year and we have a number of tools to help you with this. 

Microsoft Forms 

If you need to create a survey or questionnaire as part of your work or study, you should use Microsoft Forms. 

You can access Microsoft Forms via the SGUL O365 Portal by going to and clicking on the Forms icon. 

Help and tips on how to create a survey using Microsoft Forms can be found here.  For further help please email 

Please make sure you refer to any other relevant guidance before setting up your survey, for example in terms of either data protection or research ethics requirements.  

Data protection guidance is available here and more details for researchers can be found here.

JISC Online Surveys 

Where Microsoft Forms does not provide the necessary functionality for your needs, it may be possible to use JISC Online Surveys instead.

For further information and to request access to Online Surveys please email the Learning & Development Manager at 

Survey Monkey 

Survey Monkey is a very popular online tool but we do not recommend its use due to data protection concerns.
