Graduate Student Surveys

January 07, 2013

SFU's graduate students were surveyed in 2011 to find out more about their experiences of their supervisors and in their programs.

The reports on their feedback are now available. The two types of reports in each survey below break down the results by faculty and over the institution as a whole.

2011 Graduate Student Supervision Survey (of current students)
"81% of all graduate students indicated that they were either satisfied or very satisfied with their current supervisor."

Note: If you wish to build a better relationship with your supervisor, there are upcoming workshops on Getting the Most Out of the Grad Student-Supervisor Relationship.

2011 Graduate Student Exit Survey (of graduated students)
"The vast majority of Simon Fraser University graduate students who have completed their program – 81% – feel positively about their graduate experience at the university."

Note: Graduated students indicated that they wanted more professional development activities. We've built a new professional development section on our website to pull together current training opportunities, and will be developing more programs to meet your requests.
