EUROSTUDENT VI

Collating data on the social and economic conditions of student life in Europe

Start of the project: 01-Jan-2016 - End of the project: 31-May-2018

The sixth round of the EUROSTUDENT project started in January 2016. EUROSTUDENT is an international survey project collecting data on the social and economic conditions of student life in Europe. The EUROSTUDENT dataset covers all important aspects of student life: access to higher education, students’ demographic and educational background, types and modes of study, time budget and employment, students’ income and expenditure, types of housing, and international mobility.

The project is characterised by a de-centralised network structure. Each participant country is responsible for conducting a national study according to the central EUROSTUDENT conventions. EUROSTUDENT provides a central core questionnaire as well as several handbooks detailing standards for data collection, calculation and delivery. The project is jointly conducted by an international consortium made up of seven organisations from different European countries, led by the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW). An international Steering Board representing stakeholders, policy-makers and participant countries provides advice to the project and monitors its progress. The current round of the EUROSTUDENT project takes place from January 2016 to May 2018.

Participants in EUROSTUDENT VI

Project results can be used to reflect the social dimension of higher education from a national perspective against the international context provided by the project. This enables (re-)evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the system and provides chances for mutual peer learning. Project results are also used to inform the Bologna Process Implementation Report prepared by the European Commission. EUROSTUDENT VI results will be published in the spring/summer of 2018.

The project website provides up-to-date information on project activities.
