Please take this opportunity to make yourselves familiar with reports on three surveys concerning foreign students, conducted as part of the “European Eastern University” project.
In particular, we would like to invite higher education institutions and representatives of the municipal authorities of the cities interested in attracting foreign students.
The surveys were conducted in the first half of 2015.
A survey on the motivation of potential students from abroad
The survey was conducted by academic staff at the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University in Lublin, via an on-line questionnaire in four language versions – Polish, English, Russian and Ukrainian. The survey covered a group of 500 students from Eastern Partnership countries in secondary education and university students taking their first year, mainly from Ukraine. The primary goal was to learn about the motivations behind young people’s choices concerning their plans for future education, as well as their choices of specific higher education institutions abroad.

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.

A survey on current solutions and best practices
The survey was conducted using the “desk research” method by staff at the International Exchange Office at the Lublin University of Technology. The report includes an analysis of 10 selected universities (8 from abroad and 2 from Poland) selected by the consortium to participate in the survey together, as entities that follow good practices worth pursuing in respect of their programmes for foreign nationals. The report also addresses academic and non-academic issues, discusses the internationalisation strategies of the analysed universities, and elaborates on matters of relevance to EP students.
