As part of its quality management system, the College specifies where and how it receives data from surveys as one of the inputs to bring about quality improvement.
This policy specifies the surveys the College conducts, or participates in, for the purposes of Quality Improvement.
This policy applies to Higher Education Courses and Students.
Multiple student surveys track student attitudes and feedback across the student lifecycle in the College.

The College will participate in the following surveys run by QILT (Quality Indicators of Learning and Teaching)
- Graduate Outcome Survey (GOS)

When results are returned a report, with a list of recommendations for Quality Improvements, will be submitted to the Learning Teaching and Research Committee by the Dean of Studies.
