Is your institution accessible and equal?

In autumn 2015, the Research Foundation for Studies and Education Otus has begun a survey on the accessibility at the higher education institutions in Finland. This survey is aimed at students at universities and universities of applied sciences. It aims to gather students’ experiences of accessibility at their own universities. Accessibility refers to the higher education institution’s environment and the services provided there and that these are made accessible to as diverse group of individuals as possible. We hope to receive answers from a wide variety of students.

Your answer is important, because you can give valuable information on the accessibility at your higher education institution that can be used for decision-making affecting students and for scientific research. The survey produces follow-up data which is combined with earlier data. This is of help for long term development of educational opportunities for different researched needs.

The data gathered is handled with strict confidentiality. The information we collect will be used only for research purposes. Your information will not be shared with anyone else. The results will be published at the end of the year in a survey of higher education institutions’ accessibility which aims to develop accessibility at higher education institutions.

The survey is concise. It takes you 15 minutes or even less to fill in. For those who participate in the study there will be a raffle for three 50 euro gift vouchers for stores in the S group. The survey is open until 1 November 2015.
