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.

You will be randomly selected and invited to participate.

If selected, you'll receive an invite from 1 August through your VU student email address. You may also receive a letter.

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!

There are also some great prizes to be won, as explained on this page.

Prizes

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. View the SES terms & conditions for the national prize draw.

2. The VU student prize draw where students will go in a draw to win Village Cinema movie vouchers. View the terms & conditions for the VU student prize draw.
