Following up of key metrics and student surveys

On this page, you can read more about how the faculty works on surveys aimed at students and alumni. The results are important in raising the quality of programmes and courses.

Student and alumni surveys

The Faculty of Science undertakes surveys aimed specifically at the faculty’s students and alumni. The results of these surveys, as well as university-wide surveys, form an important basis for the faculty’s strategic planning of programmes and courses. The faculty strives to ensure that the programmes and courses offered reflect students’ interests and the needs of society.

The faculty’s Labour Market Council conducts an annual survey of alumni in two parts – one for alumni with a first-cycle degree and one for those with a second-cycle degree. The questionnaire provides valuable information about how programmes and courses can be better adapted to the labour market, and how students experience the learning environment. The results are presented in written reports, as well as through visits to departments and the faculty’s various bodies.

Work on analysing and following up the faculty’s surveys is primarily done in the Study Programmes Board, but the results are also broken down to departmental level and dealt with there.

Follow-up of key metrics

The faculty office regularly collates key metrics pertaining to applicant numbers, admissions, student completion rate and graduation rate. These form the basis of the faculty’s organisational discussions and the strategic planning of programmes and courses.
