Staff and undergraduate student surveys prize winners

Student Voice surveys

Each year we ask students to complete online surveys sent via email to give feedback on their time at Victoria. The insights from these surveys are used to inform decision making and improve student focused initiatives.

2018 surveys

Undergraduate student survey

Victoria has joined the Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) Consortium which will allow us to compare your student experience to that of students at universities across the world. This survey was open for six weeks from the beginning of May.

This survey gave students the opportunity to voice their opinion and help change the University. Unlike other student surveys, this survey asked how students actually spend their time at Victoria University, how much they engage with the opportunities on offer and what could benefit from changing.

The results from this survey will be posted on this page in late-2018.

The following were students who won prizes for completing the survey:

  • Amy Scarlett
  • Caitlin Sue
  • Catherine Bland
