“Enabling student engagement and success in HE is a national priority. The results of StudentSurvey.ie and PGR StudentSurvey.ie will be immensely useful to MTU as we plan for the future and think about how we can enhance the MTU experience for all students. I hope all participating institutions will pay close attention to the feedback shared by students and respond to that feedback as effectively as they can.”

“There is now an opportunity for institutions to improve and reform teaching and learning practices by retaining elements that perform well and discarding approaches that may have been ineffective. We encourage transparent use and implementation of the data gathered by the survey and retaining the aspects of flexibility seen across the sector. We are committed to working collaboratively with all stakeholders across the higher education system to promote and support the enhancement of the student experience.”

“This is a really significant piece of research. Nearly 50,000 students have done their bit and shared their experiences through the surveys. Now it is up to the institutions to listen to the students’ voices, opinions, and concerns”
