This section presents the reports for five projects which analysed the qualitative data from StudentSurvey.ie 2016-2020 and PGR StudentSurvey.ie 2018-2019.

In 2021, the StudentSurvey.ie Steering Group was pleased to publish the results of five research projects analysing the qualitative data generated by the free-text response questions in StudentSurvey.ie and PGR StudentSurvey.ie. 

These results are the first of their kind for StudentSurvey.ie and PGR StudentSurvey.ie and we hope they are the first of many research projects involving the qualitative results of these surveys.
