Graduate Survey

With the survey of graduates one to two years after the end of their studies, several research interests and goals are pursued. Diverse information is gained, for example, on the career achievements of the graduates, the period of entry into work, the competencies learnt during study and those required in the career.

With the aid of this information, patterns in entry-level work, among other things, can be identified, the correspondence between what is learnt and what is required monitored and critical evaluations of study conditions analysed. The feedback from the graduates serves to identify strengths and weaknesses in the study programmes and to recognise problem areas, all of which is then taken into account in study programme development, quality assurance and the (re-)accreditation of study programmes.


RESULTS AND PRIZE HANDOUT

Academic Year 2019

In the period from the end of October 2020 until mid-March 2021, the graduates from the 2019 examination year at Leibniz University Hannover were asked to take part in the KOAB graduate survey. Of the 4.868 graduates contacted, 1.933 took part in the survey. This represents an adjusted response rate of 40%.

The survey is being evaluated at present and the results prepared in order to be made available to the faculties, the university administration and the central facilities. You can find the results of previous surveys here.

On behalf of the ZQS and the university administration, we offer all participating graduates our heartfelt thanks!

8 book tokens to a value of € 20 each and a voucher of an online mail order company for hardware and software to the value of € 250 have been distributed as prizes. The winners have been notified by email.

INFORMATION ON THE SURVEY

Since 2007, Leibniz University Hannover (LUH) has taken part in the Cooperative Project for Graduate Surveys (KOAB), which was initiated by the International Centre for Higher Education Research (INCHER) with the support of the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) and which has been coordinated by the Institute for Applied Statistics (ISTAT) since 2017. As part of this scientific project, approx. 60 universities in Germany cooperate in the development and execution of graduate surveys, whereby a direct comparison between an individual university and the others is made possible.

The goal of the surveys is to contribute to quality development in study and teaching at the individual universities, as well as to contribute to university research.

CONTENT OF THE SURVEY

The KOAB graduate survey is notable for its variety of topics. Aspects addressed by the survey are the situation before study, progress of study, retrospective evaluation of study and study conditions, entry into work, progress of career, current occupation, relationship between study and career and satisfaction with the current employment situation.

The core questionnaire is identical for all universities taking part in the KOAB project and is supplemented by university- and subject-specific questions.
