First year student? Tell us what you think and be in to win…

If you’re a first year student – we’re keen to hear about your experience so far at UC.

Early Experience Survey
Check your UClive email address for the Early Experience Survey. The survey asks a range of things about your early experience at UC – such as why you chose to come to UC, how your first few weeks have been and what you think of student life.

Why your feedback is important
UC runs this survey to help us understand what is needed to best support first year students. Your feedback will help us shape new initiatives and support for future first year students. Previously a number of initiatives have been implemented based on feedback from the Early Experience Survey, including:

  • the subsidised dental scheme
  • extended library hours
  • heat and eat areas across campus
  • more storage lockers
  • women only hours in the gym
  • skills training courses for research students.

How long will it take?
The survey should take around 15 minutes to complete. You have the option to save your responses and come back to it at a later time if you need to. 

Be in to win
If you participate in the survey, you will go in the draw to win one of three UE Wonderboom bluetooth wireless speakers.
