The YOU Student Wellbeing Survey

The 2024 YOU Student Wellbeing Survey is a long-term project, which aims to understand more about how student experiences interact with their wellbeing. To do this, we are reaching out to students twice a year for each year they study at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington.

Wave 7 of the survey was sent to fourth-year undergraduate students on Monday 22 April 2024. The survey period has now closed.

We need to understand how your wellbeing impacts your studies. Please refer to student services if you need any additional support.

Insights from the survey will be used to inform the University’s learning environment and support services.
