Dear participants,

thank you for taking a few minutes to complete our survey on the quality of studies, teaching and working at RWU. We are very interested in your opinion as it gives us valuable information on how we can further develop RWU together. The aim of this survey is to measure your satisfaction with various aspects of studying at RWU, and to gather your suggestions for improvement. Your participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous. The general questions at the beginning are necessary so that only the content that is relevant to you is shown to you in the further course. Your anonymity will nevertheless be preserved. Please allow approximately 15 minutes for your participation and click on "absenden" (submit) before closing the browser window. The details on how to enter the prize draw will be displayed at the end of the survey. If you have any questions, please contact qualitaetswerkstatt@rwu.de. Thank you for your participation!

10.1


10.2Thank you very much for making it this far! Last but not least, a question on our own behalf: In previous years, this survey always took place in the form of a three hours long workshop in the foyer of the main building. Following the participants' wishes for a more flexible format, we have opted for an online survey this time. Which format do you prefer for the future?
