Student survey governance
The ACU Survey Governance Framework was developed to avoid over-surveying current ACU students. Permission to survey ACU students must be obtained according to the process stated in the framework.
Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching (QILT)
QILT is a suite of national, higher education surveys endorsed by the Federal Department of Education that covers the student lifecycle from commencement to employment.
Student Barometer Survey
The Student Barometer Survey is an independent student satisfaction survey conducted every second year by the International Graduate Insight Group on behalf of the University.
Community Engagement Activity Survey
The Community Engagement Activity Survey is conducted annually and aims to capture the scale, diversity and type of community engagement activities undertaken by ACU staff.
