The alumni’s feedback is an important source for Ulm University for adapting study terms to the needs of our students and ease the graduates' transition into work life.
The results of the alumni survey will be used by Ulm University for the quality development of higher education and will be published into the report on teaching ("Bericht zur Lehre").
University members can download the reports on teaching from the website of the executive support unit Quality Development, Reporting and Revision.
The information we gain provides various approaches for the development of our study programs and the improvement of our service centers.
Based on the results of the survey, our departments will be able to evaluate their study programs. They can assess whether the skills they teach match their alumni’s’ occupational needs and experiences.
We also can specifically expand the course offers for key qualifications we offer. Insights regarding study and career paths are utilised by the Career Service and the academic advisors.
Every other year Ulm University conducts a general alumni survey. During fall term 2022/2023 we contact every alumni of 2021 and invite them to participate in our survey.
The central topics of our survey are:
The evaluation responsibilities in the areas of study, teaching and continuing education are stipulated in the evaluation regulations. The evaluation regulations determine which personal data of teachers, students and alumni to collect, process and in which form they are to be published.
The alumni's addresses at the time of graduation are provided for the dispatch of the invitations by the study administration office. These address data are compiled exclusively for the purpose of conducting the alumni survey. The legal basis is provided by the Landeshochschulgesetz (LHG) für die Hochschulen in Baden-Württemberg, in particular § 5 in conjunction with § 12 LHG.
As the saved addresses of the graduates are not always up to date a year after graduation, we might update the addresses as needed by way of collaborating with the resident registration offices and post offices as well as conducting an internet search.
Each alumni receives a randomly generated access code. With this code participants can access the online questionnaire (sufficiently protecting it from unauthorized access). Through monitoring the use of access codes it is also possible to see who has already filled in the questionnaire. These alumni then will not receive further reminders (up to four contacts during the course of the survey are possible). An identification through the access code and the responses in the questionaire is not possible at any time.
There might be a temporal overlap with the reminder and your participation. Verifying the not used access codes your code was mentioned.
