Teesside University is ranked number one of 120 world universities for overall average satisfaction (International Student Barometer 2017 - more information below)
The International Student Barometer Survey is an annual survey conducted by i-graduate.
The International Student Barometer Survey specifically provides universities with an understanding of the motivations, expectations and experience of international students.
At Teesside University, we use the Survey to gain insights into the experience we offer to our international students, to identify the things we are doing well and to understand where we need to make improvements.
It is divided into four sections learning, living, support and arrival with a series of specific categories within each section.
