 Student Feedback Channels

The University strives to provide quality education and training to students, and feedback from students is valuable for the evaluation of the result of the endeavor. The Student Evaluation of Teaching and Learning (SETL), in particular, allows students to rate and comment on the courses they take near the end of the courses. To further enhance communication between teaching staff and students, the Department also supports the half-yearly Staff-Student Consultative Committee (SSCC) meetings, during which student course representatives and respective teaching staff exchange their views on certain aspects of the courses concerned. All feedback from students are collected anonymously.
