i-graduate was commissioned to run SERU-I (registering international universities only) in 2014. Since then, they have worked with international research-intensive universities in The Netherlands, Germany, Japan, Russia, China, UK, and Sweden.
i-graduate was excited to welcome Victoria University Wellington onboard in 2018 and have some opportunities in Singapore and Taiwan to further explore.
i-graduate’s Student Experience in the Research University (SERU) Consortium is an academic and policy research collaboration based at Center for Studies in Higher Education at the University of California – Berkeley (CSHE). The consortium includes a selective group of top ranked international research universities who share the following objectives:
- Develop and administrator an online, census, and customized version of the SERU survey of first-degree students for international research universities, parallel to the SERU Surveys in the US.
- Conduct research on the student experience, sharing best practices via SERU meetings, symposia, and joint-research projects intended to inform and drive institutional self-improvement in undergraduate education and broaden our understanding of the socioeconomic impact of these institutions.
- Collaborate with SERU-AAU Consortium members in the generation and sharing of institutional, comparative, and longitudinal data on the student experience, including SERU surveys of students, and based on agreed data sharing protocols.
i-graduate run two survey periods each year (Spring and Winter) to enable some flexibility (to launch the survey at a convenient time) to our clients.
