Final Reports of the Graduate Surveys (2007, 2008, and 2009)

Since 2008, Freie Universität Berlin has been participating in the cooperation project KOAB, which uses graduate surveys to analyze the effects of study programs and conditions at the higher education level in Germany. The project (Study Conditions and Professional Success), in which more than 50 higher education institutions in Germany have participated each year since that time, is organized and supervised by the International Centre for Higher Education Research (INCHER), at the University of Kassel.

Below, you can see the results of the first three rounds of the survey, each of which brought responses from approximately 40% of the graduates for that year’s graduating class (2007, 2008, 2009). You can also download the results as a PDF file. Work is currently under way on the report on the last round of the survey (2011). The graduating class of 2010 was not surveyed.

We would like to thank everyone who articipated for the time and effort they spent filling out the questionnaires and for the points of criticism they cited in the process. This has helped to further improve the quality of study programs and teaching at Freie Universität Berlin.


In addition, there are several publications on the overall study of the various graduating classes, in which approximately 50 higher education institutions from all over Germany have participated each year. These publications can be requested from the KOAB cooperation project of the University of Kassel/INCHER.
