Student feedback was collected last year in the spring and autumn feedback weeks in the form of a new student and annual feedback surveys. Feedback was also collected from master´s degrees and through Graduation phase survey.  
During the spring, students and staff will discuss the feedback at joint degree programme specific events, in which the possible development measures will also be agreed. 
Follow your Degree Programme’s info on the time of the feedback events, get involved and share your ideas!
