HSA students have a range of opportunities throughout and beyond their study to provide suggestions and input into their course and student experience. One means for students to provide feedback is through the HSA surveys.
Each year HSA conducts a number of student surveys at the unit of competency, course and broader level to gain insights into students' learning, teaching and overall experience of studying with Health Skills Australia
Feedback from surveys is used by HSA to inform strategic planning, quality assurance activities, meet regulatory and contractual requirements, and to improve the learning and teaching experience for students. Information for students on key improvement activities in response to their feedback is provided via news items and announcements. You are encouraged to participate in these surveys.
The information below introduces the main surveys used by HSA to obtain feedback from students and new graduates.
