About the University Experience Survey (UES)

The University Experience Survey (UES) is one of a number of initiatives being developed by the Australian Government to help ensure ongoing improvement in the quality of learning and teaching in Australian universities. The UES focuses on aspects of the student experience that are measurable, linked with learning and development outcomes, and for which universities can reasonably be assumed to have responsibility. It is similar to the University of Sydney Student Course Experience Questionnaire (SCEQ) and is designed to provide reliable, valid and generalisable information to the Australian Government and to universities.

The UES was first administered at the University of Sydney in 2012. In 2013 the Department of Industry, Innovation, Climate Change, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIICCSRTE) are working with Graduate Careers Australia to collect data from first and final year undergraduate students in August.

A report from the 2012 survey is available here.
