Studiebarometeret – The National Student Survey

Dear student. Voice your opinion about the quality of your study program!

This is an invitation to participate in Studiebarometeret – the national student survey. The questionnaire can be answered in Norwegian or English.

The purpose of the survey

Our goal is to capture students’ view of the quality of education, and to make this information available to universities, students and others. The results give educational institutions the opportunity to make improvements. Data from the survey are also used for research purposes. Results are published on www.studiebarometeret.no/eng, as average scores for individual study programmes. The survey is conducted by NOKUT, and commissioned by the Ministry of Education and Research.

Why are you being asked to participate?

Studiebarometeret is a survey among all students in the 2nd and 5th year of study, about 74.000 students. Your institution has allowed us to retrieve directly personally identifiable information (email and phone number) and indirectly identifiable information (study program, gender, age, admission basis, exam results and citizenship) about you.

What does participation entail for you?

You participate in the survey by filling out a web questionnaire, which takes about 10-15 minutes to complete. All respondents have the chance to win either one of five gift cards with a value of 5000 NOK, or one of 25 gift cards with a value of 1000 NOK.

Participation is voluntary

Participation in the survey is voluntary. You may at any time and without reason ask that we remove all information about you.

Your personal privacy – how we store and use your personal data

You can find more information about personal privacy in the questionnaire!

The institutions provide NOKUT with background data on all students, based on a legal commitment. This also applies to those who do not participate. The purpose is to investigate whether the answers we receive are representative of the student population, which is very important in order to interpret the results. It is possible to opt out of this by sending an e-mail to res-studiebarometeret@nokut.no. Background information for those who do not participate in the survey will be deleted by February 2022.
