Our work in Student Voices gives students opportunities to share their opinions and thoughts on various aspects of learning, assessment, feedback and the student experience at CIT. Giving students opportunities to share their experiences is integral to our students feeling empowered as active members of CIT's learning community.
Feedback opportunities under Student Voices include but are not limited to surveys, polls and StudentSurvey.ie.
