Education development enquiry results from 2019

The information gathered through the education development enquiries helps to further develop the education, study counselling and student’s self-steering, the learning environment and the general working environment. All Bachelor and Master degree students respond to the education development enquiry in the middle of their studies.

Education development enquiry was open from mid September until the end of October. Enquiry was for students who are about half way through their studies.  This year we got 708 replies. From the replies 75% was from students who were in full- time studies, 23% were in part- time studies and 2% in online studies.

Question were as propositions and rating scale was as follows: 1 = very poorly, 2 = quite poorly, 3 = not well or poorly, 4 = quite well, 5 = very well and I can`t say –answer option, that was not included when calculating average scores.
