Exploratory student survey February 2017

Important findings in this survey include the possibility to do additional research on the number of (first year) UC students that drop out, the amount of rent UC students pay compared to regional and national averages, the number of UC students that has a side job compared to regional and national averages, positive and negative effects of ‘the bubble’ and prejudices towards UC students. Respondents also indicate that they face high academic pressure but that this is in line with their expectations. All UCs have health counsellors available for students to visit.

The full report can be downloaded here.

Original data (anonymized) can be retrieved in PDF, Excel and SPSS format. You may send any analyses you’ve done to info@ucsrn.nl. We’re open to conducting new academic research together with students.

LAS Alumni Survey Fall 2017

In the fall of 2017, the University Colleges Deans’ Network commissioned a joint alumni survey of graduates of the University Colleges as well as other Liberal Arts and Sciences programs in the Netherlands. This survey aimed to discover what students did after completing their bachelor programs, including the graduate programs they attended and their current position on the labor market. Over 3000 alumni participated, and a factsheet is made available, which can be downloaded here.
