Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Student feedback and unit coordinator feedback.


Differences in formatting and word limit requirements between academic journals, APA Style, and CQUniversity requirements created confusion for students.


Remove expectation for students to target an academic journal for publication of the research project, provide a set word limit that everyone must adhere to, and stipulate that APA7 style is expected for all students. Students to be advised that they can reformat the thesis after submission and grading if they wish to submit to an academic journal.

Feedback from Student feedback.


Drop in sessions were a useful way for students to maintain contact with the unit coordinator and other students.


Continue fortnightly drop-in sessions in 2021.
