Statement of Mutual Expectations
The University of Adelaide offers students a unique educational experience. The Statement of Mutual Expectations outlines the basis for achieving this by clarifying mutual responsibilities of both students and the University.
First Year Experience
The University of Adelaide aims to maximise the learning and engagement of first year students. The First Year Experience website has been developed to provide information and resources to help students adjust to uni life.
The Digital Toolkit (UA login) is an online resource containing interactive tutorials, free online Microsoft Office Training and other online resources. It is aimed at providing the skills needed to engage with digital tools for assignments and beyond.
The University of Adelaide is committed to supporting the transition of students into university life. The Succeed@Adelaide - First Year Retention Project (Staff only) has been established to provide strategies for improving retention rates of undergraduate commencing students.
Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT)
The Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (eSELT) is an online survey that gives students the opportunity to provide confidential and constructive feedback on their learning experiences in their courses.
The feedback is used to guide staff and the University in making continuous improvements to courses and teaching for the benefit of students and is also used to identify and reward excellent teaching practice.
The SELT is conducted for each course and teacher that a student is enrolled in.
The results from the survey are always reported to staff in aggregate and do not include any information that will identify students.
