The Exit Survey

The University is committed to improving the quality of the educational experience for its higher degree by research students. In an effort to determine the views of completing students and in doing so, to identify ways in which the University can improve its programs and support structures, all research students are required to complete an exit survey prior to submission of their thesis for examination.

The data collected are stored in a database, analysed regularly and the results reported to the Research Education & Development Committee (REDC). The results of the Exit Survey inform policy development at the University and are instrumental in shaping positive change throughout the institution.

All matters regarding the Exit Survey are kept strictly confidential and may be released to interested parties only with the approval of REDC and then only in aggregated form to ensure that the anonymity of individuals remains protected. The process for lodging an exit survey is as follows: On receipt of your Notification of Intention to Submit form, the Adelaide Graduate Centre will email you a reminder to complete the survey online.

If you object to completing an Exit Survey, you may appeal to the Deputy Vice- Chancellor and Vice-President (Research) in writing, specifying the reasons for the objection.

Note that the Adelaide Graduate Centre is unable to accept your thesis for examination until the matter has been resolved.
