Announcement: Join the workspaces of audit in UEF

The audit of the University of Eastern Finland will take place on November 9–10. 2022. In auditing, i.e., external quality control, the university's operation is evaluated based on whether it meets the criteria for high-quality operation. The assessment is carried out by the National Assessment Council (KARVI) under the Ministry of Education and Culture. In student auditing workshops, students discuss their own experiences with each other, e.g. about studying, teaching, support services or the study environment at the University of Eastern Finland based on the assignment given by the audit team. Students can share their own experiences as study experts.

KARVI's wish in auditing students is that the student interviewees represent the views and life situations of the students as widely as possible, so it is hoped that the interviews will be attended by as many year courses and students of different ages as possible. It is hoped that the group of interviewees will also represent both campuses of UEF, all faculties and genders.

Welcome to respond to the survey!

The aim of the survey is to obtain diverse information on students’ experiences and views on learning and studying in higher education. We hope that every higher education student will respond to the survey based on their own experiences of studying. Everyone’s answer is important.

The deadline for responding is 7.10.2022. Responding takes around 20-25 minutes. Answer to the survey here

The survey is part of the Evaluation of the state and reform of higher education pedagogy, which is implemented by the Finnish Education Evaluation Centre (FINEEC). Some of the answers may be used in the Evaluation of Government’s key projects for higher education 2017–2022. Once the evaluation has been completed, the responses will be archived, and they can be handed over for research use. The answers that will be archived will be anonymised. The results of the survey will be reported in a way that makes it impossible to identify individual respondents.

For more information on the evaluation, visit the project website. I am happy to provide more information about the evaluation and the implementation of survey.

Thank you for participating in the evaluation!
