Surveys of Current Students

These surveys cover a range of topics and provide a comprehensive picture of the educational experience at UBC. Feedback from students provides invaluable insight about their academic engagement, learning experiences, health and wellbeing, career preparedness, and perceptions about equity, diversity and inclusion at UBC.

The Canadian Campus Wellbeing Survey (CCWS) is a new standardized survey led by Dr. Guy Faulkner, a faculty member at UBC, and a group of academic researchers across Canada. It is meant as an alternative to the NCHA, or the National College Health Assessment.

The National Survey of Student Engagement, or NSSE, is a standardized survey conducted by the NSSE Institute at Indiana University. Post-secondary institutions participate in NSSE on a regular basis. UBC participates in NSSE every three years; we last participated in 2020, 2017, 2014, etc. It is administered on first year and fourth year undergraduate students.

The Undergraduate Experience Survey (UES) is a regular survey on UBC undergraduate students in Winter Session Term 2 (Jan to Apr). It runs every year except when UBC participates in the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). It was administered in 2018, 2019, and 2021 but not 2020, as UBC participated in NSSE in 2020.

It is currently run by Student Experience Evaluation and Research (SEER) within UBC’s Planning and Institutional Research (PAIR) office .
