Student consultation on the 2019 SSAF budget requests
In September 2018, all students were invited to complete the 2018 SSAF Survey. The survey was open for 22 days from the 17.9.18 to the 8.10.18. 22,579 survey invitations were sent and 1,167 students participated in the survey (5.16% response rate).
The results are summarised in the 2018 Student Services & Amenities Fee Survey - Report. The SSAF Budget Advisory Committee considered the results from this survey along with the 2017 SSAF Survey when deliberating on how to allocate funds for 2019. The SSAF Budget Advisory Committee would like to thank all students who completed the survey and provided feedback.
