Understanding students’ reasons for enrolling in master degree programs: A survey of six European countries
Researchers from CEU’s Yehuda Elkana Center for Higher Education are conducting a survey to better understand the reasons why individuals enroll in master degree programs offered by European universities. The survey targets students currently enrolled in master degree programs in six European countries: Austria, Estonia, the Netherlands, Poland, Romania, and Slovenia. Data is collected via an online questionnaire developed specifically for this project; participants can fill in the questionnaire in English or in one of the local languages. Data collection begins in May 2019. Links to the online questionnaire will be disseminated with help from the European Students’ Union, as well as the national student union and local student unions in the six European countries targeted by the survey. Findings from this research project will be published in academic papers and presented to policy makers, with the aim to provide evidence for informed policy making in European higher education.
