Freshers' Survey Report 2013

OUCS and now IT Services have run a survey at Freshers' Fair since 2004. The aim is to capture the prior experiences, and more recently, wishes of freshers to inform IT Services’ strategy, focus and resources. For example, the IT Learning Programme use the data to help them plan courses.

The survey also provides a wealth of data for divisions and others to use as they see fit, for example, to explore the support requirements for students or assess what proportion would own the appropriate technology to access facilities they might provide.

The Freshers' Survey Report 2013 (1,610kb) is now available for you to read. Please contact in case of questions, or if you are interested in the possibility of further analysis.

The Freshers' Survey 2012 report (938kb) is also available.
