Surveys give students the chance to have their say and make a difference to the quality of their University experience.

Surveys and feedback

Have your say. Make a difference.

Do you want to tell your lecturers they are doing a great job? Do you need better access to wireless internet? Do you have a suggestion that could improve your degree? University surveys and feedback give you the chance to have your say and make a difference to the quality of your university experience.

How to give your feedback

Regardless of whether you are a new student, in the final days of your degree, or have just graduated we welcome all feedback about your courses right through to the services we provide.

From time to time, UoN will ask you to take part in surveys. You can access these surveys through your NUmail (studentmail) or by clicking the orange 'surveys' icon on the homepage of the myUoN portal.

The following surveys have been designed so that we can find out what's important to you:

Congratulations on graduating from the University of Newcastle. It's now time to complete the Australian Graduate Survey (AGS). The AGS is a national census of newly qualified graduates that helps us understand the quality of your university study experience.

Completing the Survey

The survey is sent from the University and Graduate Careers Australia to all graduates at the end of April or October.

Look out for your copy (either by email or post), answer all the questions and then return the completed survey. If you attend your graduation you will be given a copy to complete before the ceremony.

The start of your university adventure is an exciting experience but it can also be overwhelming which is why we try to make the transition as smooth as possible. Your feedback via the Commencing Students Survey allows us to make sure that everything from orientation to campus signage all live up to your expectations and make your first few weeks that little bit easier.

Completing the survey

The Commencing Students Survey is conducted online every two years and will be sent to all new students..

The International Student Barometer (ISB) is an online survey that invites international students to provide feedback on their time at the University of Newcastle and ensure we remain a number one destination for students who wish to take their studies abroad.

Completing the survey

The ISB is an annual survey that is independently administered worldwide by the International Graduate Insight Group (i-graduate). All eligible international students will be sent an email to complete the survey.

Your courses. Your say.

The Student Feedback on Courses (SFC) survey gives you the opportunity to tell us what the best and worst aspects of your university courses are. Everything is important - from what you learn to how it is taught. So if there is something that you loved or you think we can do better, your feedback can help us make your university experience right for you.

Completing the survey

All trimester and off-shore courses will be surveyed each year and semester based courses will be surveyed in alternate years.
