University of Tampere Student Surveys
The University of Tampere has conducted student experience surveys annually since 2004. The surveys gather information on progress in, satisfaction and problems with studies. They contain both repeated and changing modules. Student feedback is used to improve the quality of courses. From 2006 onwards, the surveys have been directed to second, third and fifth year students. Second year student data cover the respondents' attachment to the university, what it had been like to start studying their course and factors supporting or hampering these processes. Third and fifth year student data focus on study progress, work, completing the course and future plans.
