EUROSTUDENT studies and analyses

The international EUROSTUDENT studies look at issues such as young people's access to higher education, the study conditions in higher education, students' use of time and their income, and integration of international students in Finland. The plan is to use the results of these studies more efficiently in developing the Finnish higher education.

The seventh EUROSTUDENT study was carried out in Finland in spring 2018 as an online survey sent to a sample of 25,000 higher education students. The data was collected by Statistics Finland. The reports and research articles based on the data will be published during the first half of 2020.

During the previous EUROSTUDENT round, higher education researchers analysed certain themes related to the survey topics. The themes included:

  • Progress of studies and flexible study paths
  • International mobility
  • Equality in education

The research articles form a picture of the backgrounds, experiences and social status of Finnish higher education students. This research data can help develop, for example, the practices of student exchange, student admissions and identification of prior learning.

The collection of articles has been published in the publication series of the Ministry of Education and Culture.
