Have your say

As a student, your voice matters. We want you to help shape policy, proposals, and plans that affect you during your time at Victoria University of Wellington.

Improving student experience

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.

Student Voice—Getting Started

The Student Voice—Getting Started survey will run from Monday 13 to Sunday 19 March 2023. It aims to capture our new students’ initial impressions of life on campus, as well as their experiences of enrolment and orientation.

The Student Voice—Getting Started survey is an important tool for us to learn from your experience. It will help us to identify what’s worked well, and to inform future improvements.

The survey is open to all students commencing their studies in Trimester 1, 2023. All eligible students will receive an email with a unique participation code.

There will be prizes to win throughout the week for those who complete the survey:

  • four $50 cash prizes
  • one prize of $300.

Prize winners will be selected at random and will be notified by email. Students who complete the survey will be entered into all subsequent prize draws, and all students who complete the survey will go into the draw for the $300 prize.

Any questions should be sent by email to studentsurvey@vuw.ac.nz.
