What is Did you know?

We've listened to feedback from St George's students to make improvements to their university experience.

To let you know what improvements we've made, we've launched our Did you know? campaign.

You'll see Did you know? information on the digital screens on campus, on our website and social media channels, which will give you information about the feedback we've received and what we've done to make improvements based on this.
