What is the UES?

The national University Experience Survey (UES) is being conducted to help universities and the Federal Govenment improve the student experience of students at universities across Australia. Results will play a key role in the ongoing evolution of Australian higher eucation. The Government has engaged Graduate Careers Australia (GCA) and the Social Research Centre (SRC) to work with universities to administer the 2013 UES.

In 2012, all 40 Australian universtities participated in the UES, with over 110,000 students responding. The UES has 5 key focus areas, shown in the figure below:
