BC Student Outcomes Surveys

Thousands of students complete their educational programs at British Columbia's public post-secondary institutions each year. These institutions, along with the Ministry of Advanced Education, recognize that student feedback is important to maintaining a high-quality, relevant education system. A number of annual surveys are used to collect information from former students, who are asked about their current employment, if they've taken any further education since leaving, and if they were satisfied with the education they received.  

Surveys administered each year include:

Survey results are used by:

  • Post-secondary institutions, to improve programs and services
  • The ministry responsible for post-secondary policy development and accountability
  • Prospective students, to make informed decisions
  • Researchers conducting studies on education globally, nationally, and provincially, etc.
