About SES

The Student Experience Survey (SES) is a national survey of over 100,000 current university students throughout Australia including students studying at UBSS, making it the largest survey of its kind in Australia. The SES aims to give students the opportunity to talk about their experience of the institution they are enrolled in.This survey is an initiative of the Australian Federal Government and is carried out by The Social Research Centre.  

The results of this research are used to help all participating institutions as well as the Australian government gain insight into students' experiences, and to monitor and improve teaching and learning in Australia.
