A survey on satisfaction from studying in Lublin among students from Eastern Partnership (EP) countries

The survey was conducted by academic staff at the John Paul II Catholic University of Lublin and covered EP students from the Lublin universities. Two research methods were employed: a quantitative survey using a questionnaire with a group of 150 people, and a qualitative survey using in-depth interviews with 20 people. The primary goal was to collect students’ opinions on various aspects of studying in Lublin, and define their level of satisfaction with what the universities and the city itself have to offer.
