CHE pilot study: masterís programme students provide information about their study conditions
The CHE regularly interviews students of undergraduate programmes about the study conditions at their higher education institution (HEI) as part of its CHE UniversityRanking. The opinions of masterís students are also becoming increasingly important since the conversion of traditional programmes to the bachelor/master system. The conversion of business studies is sufficiently far advanced now to be able to conduct interviews with participants regarding masterís programmes, and present assessments of universities, Fachhochschulen and business schools offering consecutive programmes, and non-consecutive / further education offers.
The students were asked for their assessment of their study programme in general (overall assessment), about the relevance of practical and research-related elements, and also about aspects of teaching. Information about the transition to the masterís phase was also acquired.
When illustrating the results, distinction was made between consecutive programmes whose content is based on a bachelorís study offers as well as non-consecutive and further education offers that are not based on a first study programme and for which one year of professional experience is a prerequisite.
For the consecutive offers, Universitšt Augsburg and EBS Oestrich-Winkel were in the top group for many aspects.
No ranked groups were formed for the non-consecutive/further education offers, but based on the mean values of the individual indicators, it turned out that the WHU Otto Beisheim School Vallendar and the FH Ludwigshafen received particularly positive assessments.
The results have been included in the UniversityRanking and are available online under www.das-ranking.de.
