Student Outcomes

Because student feedback is key to maintaining a high-quality, relevant education system, Camosun College participates in BC-wide surveys of former students each year. Graduates and students who have completed a significant portion of their program of study are contacted some time after leaving Camosun College and asked about their college experience and post-program activities.

In the past three years, more than 5000 former Camosun students from diploma, certificate, university transfer, associate and bachelor's degree, developmental and apprenticeship programs have taken the time to share their thoughts about the College and their program of study. Check our Student Outcomes Survey Data Reports to find out how satisfied they were with their educational experience, how many found jobs, how many went back to school and more. Other BC-wide and Camosun-specific reports can be viewed in our publications section.
