Student Experience Survey (SES)

Program Title

Feedback from students is very important in trying to improve the quality of learning experiences at higher education institutions. 

This questionnaire is designed to gather student opinions about their experiences about half way through their program.  The items relate to all your experiences so far, not just to one particular course.

This is a confidential survey.  Do not write your name or identify yourself.  Your responses will be combined with the responses of others in a process that does not allow any individual to be identified and the overall opinions will be used to plan for improvements in the quality of educational experiences at your institution.

Please respond to the following questions by selecting a response for each of your answers.
