Satisfaction survey among doctoral students starts on Thursday

From 2 April to 4 May, all doctoral students of the UT are invited to share their opinion on their studies to help the university plan changes in doctoral studies.

The University of Tartu is planning major changes in doctoral studies in the coming years. The vision for the development of doctoral studies has been prepared. The requirements for doctoral theses are being updated. Besides, the university has supplemented the doctoral students’ income by the performance stipend.

Now, all doctoral students have the chance to influence the direction of the planned changes. For that, all doctoral students are asked to respond to the survey on their satisfaction with doctoral studies at the UT. Invitation to participate in the survey will be sent by e-mail to all doctoral students on 2 April. The survey will close on 4 May 2020.

The survey is organised by the UT Centre for Applied Social Sciences (CASS) in cooperation with the Office of Academic Affairs. In addition to the survey, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Rector’s Strategy Office are using UT databases to analyse the general situation of doctoral studies at the university.
