Student feedback surveys

Student Feedback Surveys


UOW Surveys

As a student you will be invited to provide feedback on your subjects and your teachers each year. 

The Subject Evaluation by Students (SEBS) Survey and Teacher Evaluation by Students Survey (TEBS) are conducted online at specific times in the year. Further information on these surveys (e.g. questionnaire content) is available at the resources section.

Please participate in these surveys and take the opportunity to share your constructive feedback on your learning experience.


Give your feedback in confidence

The University collects your personal information for the purpose of collating survey results and verifying that you are eligible to submit a survey response.

Your identity is not released to teaching staff and you are not identified in any reports.

Your teachers will never see your name or student ID.

We release one report for each subject and include the responses to questions and comments only for the class as a whole. For more information, read the Subject and Teacher Evaluation Surveys - Privacy Statement below. 


What you say never influences your marks

We do not release survey reports to staff or students until results are officially published. 

However, if you provide identifying information within your responses to the 'open comments' questions, this information may be available in the survey results.


Constructive feedback helps us make decisions

Please ensure your comments are as constructive, accurate and detailed as possible. Respectful, issue-focussed suggestions for improvements encourage innovation and professional development.

Your feedback can make a big difference.


Find out how feedback has led to change

A page will be available in Moodle so teaching staff can inform students of the changes implemented as a result of student feedback.


National Surveys

In addition to the subject and teacher surveys, each year you will be asked to complete the Student Experience Survey – this broader survey is funded by the Australian Government and is administered across the entire higher education sector. And on successful completion of your course, you will be asked to complete a Graduate Outcomes Survey.

Both these surveys provide the source of comparative information on the Australian Government’s ComparED website.
