LUT University continues to have the most satisfied university students in Finland. Student satisfaction was charted in the 2022 Finnish Bachelor’s Graduate Survey. LUT's average score for student satisfaction in all fields of study was 3.78, which was highest out of the 13 Finnish universities in the survey.
“Student satisfaction this strong is a stellar outcome for us. We're very proud, and naturally, we aim to do as well in the future,” says Juha-Matti Saksa, rector of LUT University.
Saksa assesses that the excellent feedback score is a result of LUT's low hierarchy and long-standing efforts to create a good campus climate. In addition, the university has recently invested in the quality of education and student services.
Students praise encouraging atmosphere and teaching
LUT scores high also in field-specific feedback. According to mechanical engineering, energy technology and electrical engineering students, the quality of teaching at LUT is the best in Finland. Moreover, in all fields of technology combined, student satisfaction at LUT was the third highest in Finland (average score 3.9). In business student satisfaction, LUT shared second place (average score 3.83).
In the latest Finnish Business School Graduates’ survey, LUT Business School shared first place in student satisfaction.
“Our university encourages collaboration, which can clearly be seen in student–staff interaction. We want to help integrate all students into our community and give them an opportunity to impact their studies. We will continue on this path and keep improving our student experience,” outlines Lari Vanhala, chair of LUT's student union.
Over 10 000 university students responded to the 2022 Bachelor’s Graduate Survey. The survey results were recently reported by Kauppalehti.
The application period for LUT’s bachelor’s programmes is open from 15 to 30 March 2023. Applications can be submitted to programmes in technology, business and social sciences. LUT’s new field of social sciences includes programmes in both social sciences and communication sciences.
