USASA Education Committee

If you’re passionate about education issues at UniSA or you’ve got feedback but don’t know who to contact, then you’ve come to the right place.

The USASA Education Committee exists so student leaders from every Academic Unit at the University can meet and discuss education issues with each other and their USASA student reps. It's student-run, and it meets on the third or fourth Thursday of every month at City West (with Zoom options for those joining remotely).

The Education Committee aims to support the views of all students, whether they are domestic, international, undergraduate, postgraduate, and PhD. 

If you have a suggestion about UniSA’s teaching and learning from a student perspective, want something put on our agenda, or simply just want a second opinion on an issue affecting your learning, please let us know via the form below. You can remain anonymous if you prefer.
