Students are satisfied with their education - and ready for professional life
The results of the Graduation survey show that students at KI are satisfied with their education and feel prepared for their future professional life. The students' answers provide important perspectives and ideas for the development of education.
KI's Graduation survey is conducted for all 38 educational programs and the results from Autumn term 2021 and Spring term 2022 show that students are generally satisfied with their education and would recommend KI to future students.
"The results indicate that to a large extent the students feel prepared for their upcoming professional life when it comes to collaborate with others, to critically review information and to work evidence-based. Moreover, students feel prepared to work in interprofessional teams," says Zoe Säflund, Educational Developer at the Unit for Teaching and Learning (UoL).
Our students feel that their education is to a large extent based on current research and that the design of the education greatly encourages independence in their learning.
The global programs had higher values on most issues.
The results on some questions show that students perceive their education as weaker when it comes to students being informed about their opportunities to influence the programmes courses. Students feel to a lesser extent encouraged to participate in the development of the courses.
The results are sent to all programs
All educational programs receive programme specific reports. The Graduation survey report with data from all the programmes is available on the Staff portal.
“The survey contains three open-ended questions about what the students feel has been good with their education at KI, advice to the programmes of what to improve and even advice to future students. These comments are meaningful inputs that provide us with new ideas and perspectives. Therefore, it is important that the programmes include this data in their quality work”, says Zoe Säflund.
