Between November 2017 and May 2018, 12 universities – ten in Australia and two in New Zealand – ran our digital experience survey and collected 21,095 responses from their students. When combined with the over 37,000 participants drawn from 83 higher and further education organisations in the UK, this is the largest sample of data looking at students’ digital experience of its kind.
Students studying in Australian and New Zealand universities, described in this report as ANZ, have very similar expectations and experiences of technology to those of our UK students. This emphasises the robustness of the survey instrument and a joint focus on the importance of the ‘student digital experience’ as well as highlighting structural and cultural similarities between the two higher education sectors.
