Students are satisfied with SAMK as a place of study

The results of the 2016 Student Survey show that in general SAMK students are very satisfied with the function of their study community. In other words their relationship with other students and teachers is good. The students are also well aware of the goals of their studies and the studies were experienced as appropriately challenging.

More than two thirds thought that they are coping well with their studies. However, criticism was given on the provision of studies and course implementations. On average studies are progressing well in all areas. The average values were at least 3.0 in statements on the progress of studies and in most statements even 4.0 (out of maximum 5). However, development needs were also discovered in the teaching process. According to the results studies should be more individual and flexible.

The 2016 Student Survey at SAMK explored what the Master’s and Bachelor’s degree students think of matters related to their studies. The purpose of the study was to find out, whether the students are satisfied with SAMK as a place of study, how satisfactory the process of studies is from the student’s perspective and how their studies are progressing. Another purpose was to explore the function of the student community.

This study is a follow-up survey to SAMK’s earlier student surveys made in 2010, 2012 and earlier.  The data were collected by an online survey between 1 March and 15 April 2016. The target group comprised the Bachelor’s or Master’s degree students at SAMK. The survey was answered by 1111 students, in other words by 22.2 per cent of the degree students enrolled for attendance.
