Student feedback

Ways students can give feedback on the courses, teaching, services and support they experience at Victoria.

Feedback on teaching, courses and tutoring

Student feedback is an important part of improving our teaching and courses at Victoria. It's how we find out what's working for our students and what they think we could do better.

We have both formal and informal processes for collecting and using feedback from students.

Students don't have to wait for teachers to seek feedback to share their thoughts on a course. They can talk to a teacher or support staff member directly, or go through their class representative.

Class representatives

Class representatives provide a connection between the lecturer and students. They also work with the Victoria University of Wellington Students' Association (VUWSA) Education Office on any academic issues that arise in their course.

Reps are elected by students by the third week of classes every trimester. Being a rep requires a weekly commitment. Representation may be approved (on a case-by-case basis) to count towards Victoria Plus and the Victoria International Leadership Programme.

Find more information and how to apply on the VUWSA website.

Student experience improvement survey

Ensuring students have a great experience at Victoria is very important to us and one of our key strategic goals.

We use the student experience improvement survey to see what students think about non-teaching activities at Victoria. That includes things like functions, facilities and services. The results help us focus our services where they are needed most, and prioritise improvements.

The survey is conducted annually and student responses are anonymous.
