Our SimOn results
SimOn is our online feedback tool developed for all students and Student Reps to use. It is open for students to submit feedback between September and July. As with all our feedback collection, the results are shared with SUBU's Full Time Officers and relevant staff in SUBU and BU, to help drive action to benefit students.
Students can submit three types of feedback:
- What works well
- What works less well
- New idea
This feedback can be on a wide variety of topics, including your academic experience, SUBU, SportBU and campus facilities.
Students can submit feedback with SimOn here.
