Professional Experience (ProfEx) surveys

The ProfEx survey is a formal process at ACU that gives students the opportunity to provide feedback on their experiences of learning in a specific workplace or another form of placement. The ProfEx questionnaire is designed to reflect the unique learning that occurs at various stages when students are undertaking work integrated learning. Currently, the survey is open to selected units in the Faculties of Education and Arts and Health Sciences. Every unit evaluated using the ProfEx survey is excluded from the SELT survey.
