“We really benefit from the Barometer. When you have a hyper-complex organisation like Oxford, you need one survey tool that can satisfy multiple stakeholder needs. The Barometer does it and it does it brilliantly… we can find meaningful data at almost every level of the university.”
Jonathan Gordon, Student Information Manager
"The ISB provides fantastic insight into our International Students regarding decision factors, expectations, concerns as well as tendency to recommend. The results not only allow us to measure our overall performance against benchmark institutions, but will allow us to make better informed decisions to enhance the overall international student experience at DMU."
Chris McCafferty, International Planning Manager
"Having participated in the ISB since 2005, we recognise the value of reaching out to international students to understand what we need to do to deliver an experience comparable to the best in the world. Gathering the views of international students has never been more important, considering how the pandemic has forced us to rethink how we deliver education and the wider student experience. The views our students share with us now will help to shape and inform what we deliver in ways we would never have imagined previously for many years to come."
Fiona O'Carroll, Deputy Director International
