Have your voice heard by the University Executive decision makers.

Would you like to have your voice heard and express your opinion directly into one of the key decision-making forums of Academic Governance? Would you like to have your say about proposed changes to HDR scholarship programs, performance review processes, grants, special consideration policies, and other issues that directly impact your HDR experience?

This is a call out for participants for a three-part study running from June to November 2017. In this study, you will be invited to give immediate feedback on current issues under discussion that directly impacts HDR students. You will also be given the opportunity to express your opinions about the University of Sydney culture and community, and directly input into the on-going creation of this University.

Four feedback questionnaires will be sent to you between July and October; each should take you less than 10 minutes (unless you choose to give longer comments!).

For an example of what we will be asking your opinion on, the first DIRECT VOICE feedback event will be focussed on substantial proposed changes to the Postgraduate Support Scheme (PRSS).

Your aggregated opinions will be de-identified and fed directly into the University Executive – Research & Education committee that they can consider student voice and opinions before they make decisions that directly impact your academic experience.
