Student Evaluation of Teaching and Courses (SETAC)


USC is committed to delivering high quality teaching and courses. The collection of feedback through Student Evaluation of Teaching and Courses (SETAC) is one of the University’s key tools for reviewing student satisfaction with teaching and courses and informing its strategy for maintaining very high standards in learning and teaching.

SETAC evaluations invite you to provide feedback on your experience of the courses you have studied with evaluations typically available in the last two weeks of teaching. Your invitation to give feedback and have your say will be sent to your USC email account.

Complete your SETAC evaluations by clicking on the embedded link in invitation emails or the survey links listed on the My SETAC – Evaluate Teaching and Courses module on Blackboard.

Online SETAC evaluations are anonymous, quick, environmentally friendly and convenient with 24/7 access during the evaluation period. Evaluations are compatible with mobile devices so you can easily complete your SETAC evaluations anywhere, anytime.

What our students have to say...

"The Student Evaluation of Teaching and Courses (SETAC) is a valuable tool for students to express satisfaction, or concern, about the quality of courses. It was quick and easy to complete, and winning a prize was a pleasant surprise!"

"Completing the survey took no time at all and really made me think about my experiences so far. While being easy and straight forward, the survey unknowingly helped me realise the quality of learning at my Uni."

“I believe that SETAC feedback is a compulsory part of the education process and overall university experience. I have seen my own feedback suggestions successfully integrated into a couple of the ICT subjects and it’s great!”

"SETAC evaluations are a great way to reflect on your own experiences of the teaching and courses at USC. I do them every semester and I've seen changes that reflect my feedback so I know they are listening to what students say. Not only does USC value my opinion I just won a $50 voucher for having my say!"
