Have Your Say - Transforming Student Experience

The Transforming Student Experience Committee values comments, suggestions and feedback from all students.

Whether you have a positive comment or a criticism; have experienced something that you would like to see more of, or had an experience that you would not like to be repeated; or have ideas and suggestions for improving the experience of all students, please feel free to contribute your comments.

Your ideas will be collated by the Associate Director, Student Experience Improvement and presented to TSEC when it meets.  Please be honest and respectful in your feedback.

You can also talk directly with any of the students on the committee, or raise anything through the Student Representative Council (SRC) within the student union. But remember, change can sometimes be slower that you may expect.  TSEC meet quarterly and will review your feedback at each meeting, so please be realistic in your expectations of the time it may take to address significant change issues. If you have an urgent issue please contact your Faculty office or Ask Adelaide.
