Information on graduand feedback AVOP

The system for student feedback, AVOP, is a joint student feedback system of universities of applied sciences and the Ministry of Education. With the AVOP-inquiry system, real time information is gathered on the employment of the graduated UAS students and on the success of education and work placement in students' opinion. The Ministry of Education takes advantage of the student feedback in evaluating education, comparing univertisities of applied sciences and different fields of education, and in planning education. Universities of applied sciences use the received feedback in developing education and work placement in different fields of education and degrees, and in comparing the results with other universities of applied sciences.
