This research note outlines a pilot study which was undertaken to test the viability of implementing a national survey of the quality of the student experience of teaching and learning within hospitality, leisure, sport and tourism programmes. The research utilised the Ramsden (1991) Course Experience Questionnaire, which has been used extensively in Australia. Indications of the initial findings are given. These show that overall, students recognise and appreciate the skills development they have achieved during their study, the teaching they have received and the content of their courses. Students feel that the primary aspect which could be improved relates to communication, including timely feedback on their work, more information about what is expected of them, and more time with tutors.
