Thank you to everyone who completed the 2018 survey.
We appreciate the support and honest feedback from each of the 7,020 people who completed the survey, giving the 2018 SFUN Survey the highest response rate (24%) since it began in 2010. This is a great achievement by the student body and sends a clear message that your experience matters.
In 2018, the survey was sent to 29,232 students enrolled as at 24 April 2018, and ran from 30 April to 20 May. Each survey comprised of 52 core questions, with the remainder being split into various themes, for a total of 98 to 102 questions per survey.
The survey is now closed, but if you still have something you’d like to tell us, you can contact ASKUON and leave your thoughts via the feedback form.
What is the SFUN?
The Student Feedback on the University of Newcastle (SFUN) survey collects your feedback on the non-academic aspects of life at UON. University is not only about achieving your academic goals, but also making sure you are supported and have a great experience inside and outside of the classroom. The survey covers everything from getting to campus, safety and security, events, health and wellbeing services, timetabling, food and retail outlets and much more. The SFUN is run every two years so we can ensure we are addressing the changing needs and concerns of all students at UON.
What were the results of the survey and how are we responding?
Your feedback is invaluable to UON to ensure we are making the good things even better, and improving on areas that are important to students.
UON leaders and staff are committed to making your university experience the best it can possibly be. We have been working hard to respond to the priorities you identified in the survey. Inside the 2018 SFUN highlights report you will find our first response to your feedback.
Rest assured, this is not the extent of our commitment to change and improvement. We have created working groups that will develop and implement more detailed plans and further improvements to respond to your feedback. If you would like more information on what these initiatives entail, you can sign up for alerts as they become available.
