What are the OUP Student Panels?

The OUP Student Panels are groups of students from all around country who come together to share their opinions about what they need from a textbook. We currently have panels for Law and Teacher Education.

Why does OUP have Student Panels?

As a leading publisher of higher education resources it is vital for us to make sure our products are meeting your needs as both students and practitioners. These panels give you the opportunity to have a voice in the publishing process through feedback and reviews.

What does being on an OUP Student Panel involve?

You’d be expected to:

  • Complete up to 6 e-surveys per academic year
  • Review and offer opinions about new publishing ideas

You can join the panel at any point during your tertiary studies and are welcome to remain on the panel until your graduation.

Why should you join?

As a panellist you’ll have the opportunity to get to know a wide range of different texts and resources that could give you the edge in your studies and in practice.

What do you receive for participating?

Participating students are rewarded in credits for each task they complete that can be used towards OUP books. The number of credits available per task can vary depending on the amount of effort involved, with each credit worth AU$5. Each year, panellists can earn up to $500 worth of OUP books.
