The CUSC surveys provide comparative information on student characteristics and experiences. They target specific undergraduate sub-samples based on a three-year cycle, alternating between:

  • first year students
  • all undergraduates (phased out after 2011)
  • graduating students
  • middle years students (new in 2014)
The surveys establish a profile of undergraduate students and cover a range of topics, such as:
  • student demographics
  • involvement in academic activities
  • extra-curricular activities
  • skill growth and development
  • student satisfaction with their university
  • education financing and debt
  • future education and employment
