A vital survey which enables Teesside University to ensure that it is able to deliver the best learning experience to international students has now been completed.
Fourteen international students at Teesside University have been chosen as the lucky winners of a prize draw in reward for completing the International Student Barometer (ISB).
The ISB is a global survey which gathers feedback from international students across the world in a wide range of areas.
The results of the survey are expected to be released later this month and Teesside University is hopeful of building on the success of last year’s ISB where over 95% of Teesside University’s international students were satisfied with the support they receive, and over 93% praised the learning technology available*.
Teesside University is an international university with a global network of partnerships and works hard to attract high quality students and staff from across the world.
It has five regional offices in India, Malaysia, Pakistan, China, Nigeria and students from more than 100 countries are studying at Teesside University.
All of the participants in the ISB were entered into the prize draw with winners receiving vouchers of £100, £50 and £25.
Jassie Kamal, from India, who is studying MSc Sports Physiotherapy, said she was attracted to studying at Teesside University after seeing photos of the campus and the scholarships available to international students.
We are always looking to improve and do things better, so this survey is really important to us, as it enable us to find out what we’re doing well and where we can improve.
She said: “I really love the campus and the staff here are great. They’re really clear and very helpful.”
Abdul Qudus Shua-Eyb, an MSc International Management (Marketing Management) (Applied) student from Ghana who won a £25 voucher, added: “Teesside University is better than I imagined. Everybody here is so friendly and polite and the campus is brilliant. I have already recommended it to a friend of mine.”
This year was the highest response rate the University has ever had on the ISB with 33% of eligible students completing the survey.
Dr David Bell, Pro Vice-Chancellor (International), at Teesside University thanked the students for completing the ISB. He said: “We are always looking to improve and do things better, so this survey is really important to us, as it enable us to find out what we’re doing well and where we can improve.
“It really helps us to make decisions about where to invest and reinvest so we can ensure that we are always delivering the best student experience.”
