International Student Barometer (ISB)

​International Student Barometer (ISB) is a survey aimed at International student through which feedback on matters such as university services,  studies and free time activities are collected. ISB can be carried out twice during an academic year. The entry wave is carried out in the autumn term when students have just started their studies, the exit wave is carried out late spring/early summer.

INSTU submits a recommendation on participation annually to Education council which then decides if the survey will be carried out. Funding for ISB is allocated by INSTU. Academic affairs initiates the actual survey process by contacting iGraduate which is the company providing ISB.

ISB questionnaire is available on-line, information and link is sent to registered international students of the university (all level degree students and exchange students).

Result presentation is given by iGraduate representative and it is mainly aimed at IMP, UniOGS and exchange coordinators. A more detailed summary of answers is provided to academic affairs.

Results are then anaylized and necessary implementations activated by departments or IMPs.

The results of 2017 will be published during the spring of 2018.
