The Student Experience Survey (SES) is an opportunity for current UQ students to talk about their university experience.

University students across Australia are surveyed, and results help both universities and government improve the student experience, including teaching and learning, and student services and supports.

The Australian Government Department of Education has engaged the Social Research Centre (SRC) to work with universities and key stakeholders to administer the SES. The work is overseen by an advisory group which includes representatives and experts from across the sector.

2024 survey

The SRC will send an email inviting eligible students to participate in the 2024 Student Experience Survey.

First-year and final-year undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students are invited to participate in the Student Experience Survey (SES) via an online questionnaire.

The SES is a national survey conducted in August each year for the Australian Government Department of Education. The Social Research Centre (SRC) administers the survey on the government's behalf.

We encourage all students to participate. The survey provides you with the opportunity to talk about your university experience, and all responses are confidential.

UQ uses the results to make improvements to teaching and learning, as well as student services and support at the University. It also gives us a valuable insight into the experiences of UQ students.

The results from the survey will be made public via the Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT) website to help current and future students make informed decisions about their study options.
