In addition to CHE Ranking and Study Quality Monitor (SQM), the University participates in other German-wide surveys on learning culture and everyday student life, student finance, and studying with challenges. These surveys provide essential information for decisions related to education policy, for example equity in education, student loans, the federal Teacher Training Quality Campaign, and funding of higher education. For us as a university, they give us a good insight into the perception of studies and learning situation in Jena compared to other higher education institutions that enables us to improve the current conditions.

Success and risk factors in master’s programmes (DZHW)

In January and February 2020, an online-supported survey (in German only) of former master’s students was conducted by the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW)External link. The survey dealed with success and risk factors in master’s programmes and was carried out on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Education and ResearchExternal link.

Despite steadily growing student numbers of master’s students, little is known about the conditions in master’s programmes. Very few well-founded empirical studies address the course of studies in master’s programmes. The survey of former students aimed at exploring the success and risk factors in master’s programmes.

Master’s students who dropped out of their institution of higher education in the 2018/19 winter semester or 2019 summer semester were interviewed. Their assessments and verdicts are important in order to gain well-founded knowledge about master’s programmes and make improvements at institutions of higher education.
