The Student Barometer™ (SB) and International Student Barometer™ (ISB) are the main tools being used across Europe enabling institutions to benchmark their performance in learning, living and support services against competitors.
Our work with national governments has allowed national Higher Education bodies to strategise their national marketing, making use of the insights into the decision-making processes of international students. At the heart of our work is understanding what students value most and where improvements can be made to safeguard the best student experience.
This 35-minute webinar recorded in July 2022 looks at the latest ISB data used by leading Higher Education Institutions to benchmark the student experience and ensure their strategies improve the reputation of their institution.

“The ISB is a very useful instrument for a university in many ways. It helps you with the internal conversation in your own institution. It gives you evidence of what works and what does not work within your institution. It provides you with a way of interacting with your customers – the international students. Thirdly, at the academic level you are able to raise awareness among professors about what works well in learning and where improvements can be made."
"As an international benchmark study, the ISB offers the DAAD and the German universities the possibility to compare their own status quo with a European and global comparison. Findings from the ISB offer universities new food for thought, in order to match the international students with the appropriate host universities and thus ensure their academic success.”
“We first started with ISB as a means to inform its leaders and managers across student services of how it placed compared to other institutions within and outside Europe. It has served as indicator for strategic development planning and for service quality monitoring and improvement. But most importantly, it has been beneficial for the teams primarily responsible for international students as they would get useful feedback regarding their work and efforts."
