Data for the CHE UniversityRanking 2011 are being analysed
More than 45,000 students on law, economics, social sciences, media studies, communication studies and journalism courses have given their views on their study conditions.
Analysis of the latest data acquired for the CHE UniversityRanking 2011 is underway. More than 45,000 students on law, economics, social sciences, media studies, communication studies and journalism courses have taken part in the interviews and assessed their study conditions. In addition to assessing the general study situation, the interviews also focused on aspects of the teaching offer, for example how study content is communicated, the international orientation of the offer, whether it is an interdisciplinary offer or not and how easy it is to study the offer. Students were also asked to give marks for tutoring and practice-based aspects of the study offer on the basis of different indicators. The student questionnaire includes a wide range of questions covering professional orientation to the promotion of IT skills. The answers given by current students will therefore help prospective students to get an impression on aspects related to the occupational field and job market relevance of the study programme.
Students can also express their satisfaction with libraries, basing their assessment not only on the stock of books but also on service, opening hours and the quality of the user support.
Interviews with faculties and administrative HEI departments.
In addition to student assessments, facts about the faculties and higher education institutions are also gathered as part of the ranking. The interviews with faculties were completed at the end of 2010. Faculties were able to check the data and make minor corrections and additions.
Administrative departments provide data about central institutions and interdisciplinary aspects of the HEI every year.
All questionnaires can be downloaded.
