Why do our students come to Leuphana?

How satisfied are they with the teaching in the study elements, their study programme and the framework conditions?

What do they do after their studies?

How do our students live and work later and to what extent do the skills acquired during their studies help them?


The internal teaching evaluation of Leuphana University comprises a group of internal university surveys of (former) students and teachers on the quality of study and teaching, which are designed and developed by the Leuphana Teaching Evaluation (LEva) team. While the course evaluation (LVE) is intended for the evaluation of teaching in individual courses, the system surveys focus on entire study programmes as well as the framework conditions of the studies.

The results of the individual surveys are incorporated into the study programme-specific quality circles and serve as a starting point for an analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of a study programme and for the conception of suitable follow-up measures for the further development of studies and teaching.

The methods currently used for system surveys at Leuphana University include

    the interim survey (survey of current students).
    the graduation survey (survey of former students),
    the alumni survey (survey of graduates approx. 3 years after graduation)

The procedures are also described in the Presidium's Procedural Guidelines for Quality Assurance in Studies and Teaching.

  • Study Conclusion Survey (SAB)
  • Alumni Survey (ALB)

Interm Survey (ZWB)

Since 2017, regular surveys of current students at Leuphana University have been conducted. Students of undergraduate teaching from the 4th semester (Bachelor) or the 2nd academic year (Master) of the respective study programme are taken into account. The survey is conducted online, anonymously and voluntarily.

Goals

Through the interim survey, the university would like to receive feedback on the current study situation, choice of studies, entry into studies as well as on the accompanying framework conditions and offers at Leuphana University.

The assessments of the current students serve the further development of studies and teaching.

Topics

The following topics will be considered in the interim survey:

  •     Study orientation & study entry
  •     Evaluation of the study situation in the individual study elements
  •     General Conditions & Challenges
  •     Summary assessment of the study programme

Outcomes

The results of this student survey serve the constructive exchange between all persons involved in teaching. The results are made available to schools and faculties in the form of reports and analysed within the framework of regular quality circles.

Study Conclusion Survey (SAB)

All former students will be invited to take part in the study conclusion survey (SAB) in connection with their exmatriculation. The survey is carried out online, anonymously and voluntarily.

Goals

The survey of graduates serves as a retrospective assessment and evaluation of the study and teaching conditions. The following objectives are associated with the survey:

  •     Recognising the strengths and weaknesses of courses, modules and study programmes
  •     Improvement of the course of studies and examinations
  •     Further development of the study programmes and the range of courses on offer.

Topics

The following topics are asked for in the questionnaire:

  •     The Leuphana study model
  •     Assessment of the teaching and study situation
  •     Examination performance and academic degree
  •     comprehensive aspects of the studies
  •     Internships and stays abroad
  •     Perception of the Leuphana University Lueneburg

Outcomes

The results of the student survey are made available to the schools and faculties in the form of result reports and analysed within the framework of regular quality circles. The survey results of the past three years are summarised for study programme-specific evaluations in order to ensure a sufficient number of evaluable cases. If the number of participants is sufficient, results reports are then prepared for both individual major and minor programmes.

Alumni Survey (ALB)

The Leuphana teaching evaluation team has been conducting annual surveys of Leuphana University alumni since mid-2014. The survey is conducted online, anonymously and voluntarily.

Goals

The alumni survey aims to find out more about graduates' career entry and whereabouts. It also serves as a retrospective assessment and evaluation of the degree programme.

Topics

The alumni survey covers the following topics:

  •     Study programme and degree obtained
  •     Application and career entry
  •     professional development and current life situation
  •     Competences acquired during studies ("competence profile")
  •     perceived professional requirements ("requirement profile")
  •     Fitting between competence profile and requirement profile
  •     Suggestions for improving the curriculum.

Results

The results of the alumni survey will be made available to the schools and faculties in the form of result reports. If there is a sufficient number of alumni, study programme-specific evaluations will also be carried out. The results of the surveys serve as a basis for advising measures for the further development of studies and teaching in the corresponding committees of the study programme and the respective faculty/school. Thus, the results are to be analysed within the framework of the quality circles that take place on a regular basis and incorporated into the control loop for the development of study programmes.
