Each year, Victoria University participates in the Student Experience Survey (SES). The SES gives you the opportunity to talk about your experience of studying at VU.

The SES is open to first year and completing higher education students from all around Australia. This includes students undertaking postgraduate coursework. Students are randomly selected and invited to participate.

The survey is open from 26 July to 28 August 2022.

Take the survey

Why complete the survey?

The survey results help Victoria University and the government to improve student satisfaction across various aspects of their university experience.

The results are used to help Victoria University and the government gain insight into students' experiences, and to monitor and improve teaching and learning in Australia.

This includes making changes and improvements in areas such as:

  • learning resources
  • teaching quality
  • student support
  • skills development
  • learner engagement.

These changes ultimately enhance the reputation of the courses you are undertaking or completing, and the University’s reputation as a world class education provider. 

That’s why your participation is so important. You can make a difference!


Every VU student who completes the Student Experience Survey (SES) will be included in two prize draws:

  1. The national prize draw. The earlier you complete the survey, the more chances you have to win as you will be included in the remaining weekly prize draws. View the SES terms and conditions for the national prize draw.
  2. The VU student prize draw where students will go in a draw to win one of 10 x $100 VU Flexi e-cards, which can be redeemed from a variety of retailers. View the terms and conditions for the VU student prize draw.
