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 and run again in 2013. It gathers information on five facets of undergraduate students' learning experience: Skills Development, Learner Engagement, Teaching Quality, Student Support, and Learning Resources.

A report from the 2012 survey is available here.

A report from the 2013 survey is available here.
