Register of Approved Surveys and Calendar

Survey approval process

As outlined in the ANU Student Surveys and Evaluations Procedure, the University gathers formal student feedback via:

  1. The Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys (or equivalent)
  2. Standard University surveys; including routine sector-wide surveys approved by government or peak bodies, and internal surveys approved by the Vice-Chancellor, or Deputy Vice-Chancellor
  3. Non-standard surveys; including any one-off or infrequent surveys exploring a specific question or theme as approved by the Director of Planning and Performance Measurement Division (PPM).

Non-standard surveys must be approved by the Director, Planning & Performance Measurement at least one month before the survey start date. Parties wishing to conduct a non-standard survey must use the Non-Standard Survey Approval Request Form, available on the right of this page.
