The University is committed to listening to the views of its students and to acting on student feedback.
Throughout the year you will be invited to participate in a range of surveys designed to inform the continuous review and improvement of USC’s courses, teaching, programs, services, facilities and resources.
The development, success and welfare of the University’s students are the main focus of these surveys.
USC takes student feedback seriously and the feedback students provide informs changes to processes, services and research.
For the opportunity to have your say check your USC email account daily and watch out for invitations to participate in surveys such as those shown below.
eVALU8 Courses and Teaching

Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS)
Graduates: The GOS is a national survey of recent graduates carried out by the Social Research Centre.
The survey collects information from graduates about their study experience and the type of work or further study they undertake after completing a qualification. USC uses the results to further develop its courses and programs, maximise students’ study experiences and to provide informed advice to students about career opportunities. GOS results also inform higher education policy development.
Invitations to participate are emailed to graduates in February, May and November each year.
Graduate Outcomes Survey - Longitudinal
Graduates: The GOS-L is a longitudinal study that connects with university graduates three years out from study to collect information on their labour market outcomes.
Students who complete an award at USC and complete the Graduate Outcomes Survey (GOS) will receive an email invitation three years after their program completion.
The GOS-L invitation is sent from email@example.com during February of each year.
