i-graduate is delighted to announce they have been selected to run the International Student Barometer (ISB) to German Higher Educations Institutions (HEIs) and DAAD (The German Academic Exchange Service). Gathering data through the ISB will increase the understanding of the international study experience at German universities, with valuable insight into student satisfaction rates. This awareness helps to understand why students choose a study destination and what makes them recommend their study experience.
The ISB is an independent and confidential feedback process for institutions tracking the decision-making, perceptions, expectations and experiences of international students. The Barometer has been implemented by over 1400 universities and colleges worldwide, with the aim to enhance informed decision-making. It is the leading tool to evaluate the student experience and the largest of its kind worldwide.
i-graduate will provide DAAD with the benchmarking data needed to enable raising the international profile of the German HEIs, recognising the role international students can play to spread the word about the quality of learning and living in Germany. The ISB will be a valuable tool, providing the German higher education sector with the intelligence required to make informed marketing, planning and recruitment decisions which will allow for continued success in a competitive international market.
