How does Freie Universität Berlin get my address, and what happens with graduates’ addresses?
Graduates are invited to participate in the survey in a letter sent by mail. To do this, we need your current address. The addresses of graduates at the time of conclusion of their study programs were stored electronically at Freie Universität Berlin based on section 6 of the Higher Education Act for the State of Berlin (BerlHG) and the Ordinance on Student Data (StudDatVO) of the Senate Department of Science, Research and Culture (Senatsverwaltung für Wissenschaft, Forschung und Kultur).
At the end of the survey, graduates have the option to agree to participate in a follow-up survey regarding their further professional development in about 3 or 4 years. The addresses of the graduates who agree to do so are stored at Freie Universität Berlin. All other address data are deleted from the address list of the project.
