- the Irish Survey of Student Engagement

Undergraduate (1st Year and Final Year) and Postgraduate Taught

On an annual basis first year and final year undergraduate and taught postgraduate students are invited to participate in a survey about their experience and engagement of higher education. This includes their academic, personal and social development, and how their institutions provide opportunities and support for this development. The survey runs each year in February and March for a three-week fieldwork period that is specific to each institution. The first survey was carried out in 2013 and has run every spring since then.

Postgraduate Research

The survey for postgraduate research students (Masters by Research and PhD) opens every second year during February – March for a three-week fieldwork period that is also specific to each institution. This survey was first run in 2018 and is now on a biennial survey cycle, with the next survey happening in spring 2023. The questions have been designed to match the experiences of research students and have been pre-tested with groups of research students in several institutions.
