Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

LUH Student Survey

  • Why a LUH student survey?

    There are approx. 29,000 students enrolled at Leibniz University Hannover. Regularly gathering the opinions of the students and providing them with an instrument to indicate necessary courses of action and problems, as well as to evaluate the services provided by LUH, is essential to systematic and continuous quality development in study and teaching.

    The results are provided in the form of reports, articles or lectures provided to the management, faculties and central facilities and intensively discussed in various committees. On the basis of the results, what is currently offered can be checked, barriers to study identified, required actions recognised and measures derived. They are excellently suited to qualitatively extending or – with regard to the results – adjusting the University’s diverse offer.

    Subjects of the LUH student survey

    The LUH student survey gives information on the following subjects:

    • Motives for study for new students

  • What happens to the results of the study?

    The data becomes part of the quality development for study and teaching at Leibniz University Hannover. For these purposes, the results, in the form of reports, articles or lectures, are provided to the management, faculties and central facilities and intensively discussed in various committees. On the basis of the results, what is currently offered can be monitored, barriers to study identified, required actions recognised and measures derived. They are excellently suited to qualitatively extending or adjusting the University’s diverse offer.

  • I am not currently studying at LUH. Should I take part nevertheless?

    Are you doing an internship, spending a study-related period abroad, on parental leave, writing a dissertation, gainfully employed, thinking of dropping out or something else?

    Then yes, definitely! Leibniz University Hannover does not just want the responses of students that are currently in courses but also those of students in other phases of study or life. Only a realistic picture of the diversity of students will help to improve study conditions and the quality of Leibniz University Hannover’s provisions sustainably and for all! Questions that cannot be currently answered can be skipped, shortening the questionnaire considerably.

  • How can I take part in the survey?

    The survey takes place online only. Please simply follow the link that was sent to you in the email.

  • How is my anonymity ensured?

    The answers entered in the questionnaire are never linked to personal data such as matriculation (registration) numbers, names or email addresses. All results are only ever published in aggregated form and thus do not allow individuals to be identified. Results with a number of cases < 5 are not published.

  • How secure is the program with which the online survey is carried out?

    The online survey is carried out using EvaSys, Leibniz University Hannover’s teaching evaluation system. All data entered into, sent within and exported from the EvaSys system is always transferred in encrypted form. You can find more details under data protection information.
