The Student Barometer tracks and compares the decision-making, expectations, perceptions and intentions of students from application to graduation.

With our customised approach, we give your international and domestic students a voice and we give you the full picture, surveying students across all fields and levels of study. Your Barometer enables you to make informed decisions to improve the whole student experience. Most importantly, it will help you to identify whether your students would recommend you to others.

Analysis, insight and meaningful comparison

Your results are benchmarked against competitor groups, national and international indicesaggregated responses from all participating institutions provide you with a substantive insight into the global picture delivered in the form of an interactive global map.  

Your SB data analysis is presented to you in two ways:  

  1. As a face-to-face presentation to your chosen stakeholder group, highlighting important issues, insights and results;  
  2. Via our online data visualisation tool, interact, enabling you to filter by study area, department, demographics, study level, study stage (year of study), study mode (part-time, full-time) and study type (student exchange, study abroad).
