Each year we survey students to better understand their experience at the Orientation Week (O-Week). See the 2021 results for our Manawatū students' survey.

Student Services Levy 2020 Survey

To consult with students on the Compulsory Student Services Levy (SSL), a survey was circulated to all students in 2020 to gather feedback on the services we offer. The survey gathered opinions on our existing services, including asking which areas students though deserved more or less support. Students also weighed in on how the SSL has benefited their campus specifically.

Each year all students have an opportunity to take part in a survey called, Tōku Reo - My Voice, about UCOL's programmes of study, facilities and services. We use this information to determine areas of focus for improvement. See the survey summary for 2021.

To understand student’s experiences at UCOL in 2020, we circulated a survey to everyone who studied at UCOL last year. Some of the aspects that we covered for feedback through this survey were student’s overall experience at UCOL, UCOL’s response to COVID-19, and their preferred UCOL communication channels, to name a few.
