Surveys to help students choose university courses

Students should be able to make more informed decisions about what and where to study with new information.

The 2016 Student Experience and Employer Experience surveys have been released to provide students with more information than ever before.

Minister for education and training Simon Birmingham said the surveys would allow students to apply and enter higher education with “clear eyes” about the course they had chosen and the job opportunities available.

“The more information that students can have at their fingertips, the better decisions they can make when considering the courses and careers they choose to embark on,” he said.

“Students can now compare satisfaction rates across a broader range of Australian higher education institutions and for the first time can also compare how those courses are viewed by their prospective employers as part of a clearer picture of our higher education system.”
