    The Vietnam Study tour being held by the School of Chemical Engineering in the term break of Semester 1 2019 will provide you with an opportunity to combine your studies, meet local people and travel through Vietnam for an amazing cultural experience.

    This is a 14-day intensive study tour travelling to the North and South of Vietnam. The tour will provide University of Adelaide students with the ability to complete this intensive elective course "CHEMENG 4043 Special Studies in Chemical Engineering" as part of your degree. You will study and collaborate with students from Vietnam providing you an unprecedented opportunity for a life-long learning experience that will connect you with the local Vietnamese community and increase your knowledge of the indo-pacific region.

    Some teaching and learning materials will be provided to students for completion prior to the trip to maximise our experience whilst in Vietnam.

    Whilst in Vietnam, we will visit Ho Chi Minh University of Technology (HCMUT) in Saigon, Can Tho University in Cantho and the Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST) in Hanoi to undertake formal class activities as well as a Plant Tour with local industry. You will also take a rich cultural journey that includes local language, culture and customs and have the opportunity to sample the culinary delights of Vietnam along with some exciting tourist and shopping destinations.

    Places are limited so please get your application in early.

  • Student Feedback

    The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.

    SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy ( course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.
