42,852 first year and final year undergraduate and taught postgraduate students responded to StudentSurvey.ie 2022, which represents a national response rate of 28%. The number of respondents was very similar to the number of respondents in 2021.
Fieldwork 2022 was not easy. Staff and student representatives had to overcome obstacles like Covid-19, technical malfunctions, time delays and missing deliveries. So as Project Manager, I want to say a massive thank you to the following people:

Thank you to Robin, Josie and the team in i-graduate, and Róisín and her team in Piquant Media.
Finally, I wish to thank the StudentSurvey.ie Steering Group, Communications Group, Analysis and Impact Group, and PGR Working Group, all of whom collaborate to make the survey an ongoing success.
What happens next?
The participating higher education institutions will get the results for students in their institution in early May. They will then work on analysing the data (sometimes using tools developed by the StudentSurvey.ie Analysis and Impact Group available here).
Students can expect results from September onwards, and to feel the impacts of changes made on foot of student feedback for years to come!
The StudentSurvey.ie National Report 2022 will be published in October 2022. In the meantime, read previous years' results and other interesting publications from StudentSurvey.ie here.
