Students about studying at the UW
23 maja 2022

Between 23rd May and 13th June students of the University of Warsaw can complete a University-wide survey for their opinions about the studies, administration services, their attachment and commitment with the UW etc. The survey will be carried out by the Education Quality Evaluation Unit, Office for Education Innovations, UW.

The UW authorities are highly concerned about the students’ opinions and judgements about various aspects of their studies. Following the guidelines of the University Council for Education, the researchers of the Education Quality Evaluation Unit have prepared a survey concerning three main issues:

  • students’ satisfaction with their academic studies, as well as their attachment and commitment with the University,
  • efficiency and reliability of the UW students’ support administrative system,
  • students’ academic activities and involvement.

“Results of the survey will demonstrate our students’ feelings and opinions about the education at the University of Warsaw. Consequently, the results are believed to help us to take actions in order to improve the academic offer and administration services, as well as increase the students’ identification with the University and academic community,” Prof. Sławomir Żółtek, UW Vice-Rector for Students and Quality of Teaching, said.

The fully anonymous survey is available in Polish and English, and it takes no more than 15 minutes to complete. The responses are confidential and they will be exclusively analysed by the UW Team. On the basis of the gathered material, the experts will prepare a report for the UW Rector and Vice-Rectors. The obtained report will be presented to the academic community.
