Improving student experience

We want to ensure all students have a great experience at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington.

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

Current surveys

Student Voice—Getting Started

The Student Voice—Getting Started survey was sent to all new students in March 2020.

The survey captures our students’ initial impressions of life on campus, as well as asking about their enrolment and orientation experience.

The surveys are an important tool to help inform decision-making across the university and support a continuous cycle of improvement for current and future students.

The results will be available later this year.

        2020 Surveys

        In 2020, we will invite students to participate in the following surveys:

        • Getting Started—for all students new to Victoria University of Wellington in 2020.
        • YOU. Student Wellbeing survey—for all new undergraduate students and returning participants.
        • SERU-I survey—an international benchmarking survey for all undergraduate students.
        • Undergraduate experience survey—for all undergraduate Victoria University of Wellington students.
