International student survey

The International Student Barometer survey has now been sent to all international students at Victoria University of Wellington.

The International Student Barometer is a global benchmark that helps us provide the best learning and teaching environment for our international students.

This important survey is your chance to tell us about your experience at the University as an international student—from deciding where to study through to applying, living conditions, quality of teaching, and more.

These results help us to make improvements to your student experience. Outcomes from the 2017 International Student Barometer survey at Victoria University of Wellington include refining the design of the study space in Victoria Business School, to improving International Orientation, and access to accommodation for international students.

If you are an international student, check your email inbox for ‘International Student Barometer survey’ in the subject line and complete the survey now.

Once you’ve completed the survey, you’ll go into a daily draw to win one of our great prizes. The sooner you complete the survey, the more chances you have of winning! Daily prizes include movie tickets, vouchers from Vic Books, The Lab, the Wellington Chocolate Factory, Mr Go’s, and gourmet chocolates, and more.

All participating students in the Southern Hemisphere will also go into the draw to win a grand cash prize of $1,000 which you can keep for yourself, or you can name a charity to donate the cash prize to.

Any student who presents a screenshot of their completed survey at the Victoria International reception desk will also be rewarded with a bonus chocolate or a coffee voucher.

To be eligible for our grand prize draw, you must currently be enrolled as an international student at Victoria University of Wellington, and complete the survey by 11.59 pm on Sunday 2 June.
