UniSmart is very effective
– we know because our audience tells us it is!
The UniSmart New Students Survey has been conducted annually since 2005. The data tells us what is top of mind for new students when they first arrive at university. This information informs the ever-evolving content of the UniSmart presentation.
We ask questions about student social (and anti-social) habits, living situation, finances, and future plans. Plus of course, we ask our audiences what they think about UniSmart.
Feedback influences the content of our presentation in a major way and enables us to reflect and respond by updating the content.
Rating the impact of UniSmart
Overwhelmingly, the survey feedback is positive (94% of UK students in 2018 rate it as ‘Awesome’ or ‘Good’ on a five-point scale from ‘Boring to Awesome’). The data supports the value of the presentation as part of a new student induction programme. Students talk of feeling welcomed, relieved, engaged and informed by UniSmart. Survey results indicate the value of the presentation in terms of induction – and ultimately retention. The collected data provides invaluable evidence for our clients.
Check out results from the most up-to-date surveys and compare the performance of your current induction programme to UniSmart. Survey reports from previous years are available on request, just drop us a line!
We value the relationships we have established with university personnel in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Australia. Working collaboratively to improve student outcomes is our combined goal. UniSmart has made a significant contribution to induction programmes at many leading universities.
We invite you to contact our clients to discuss the benefits of UniSmart, the value of the investment, and the experience of working in partnership with us to deliver the presentation.

I feel confident that the messages about looking after yourself and getting help will remain in the minds of all who attended.
