Student Voice

We'll do all that we can to ensure your uni experience is positive and you achieve success through your study. We also like to involve students in our initiatives to improve life on campus.

Student Experience surveys and workshops

It is important tauira have a say about their experiences, so we ensure that we gather formal feedback to help us inform student experience improvements.

Surveys include:

  • Accommodation surveys
  • Course evaluation surveys
  • Student Experience surveys
  • Student Services Fee surveys

Survey recommendations for improvement are made to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Student Life and Student Experience Manager who are responsible for developing actions in response to student feedback. For more information, contact our Student Experience Manager.
