Eurostudent Survey 2022

13 April, 2022

The main aim of the EUROSTUDENT project is to collate comparable data on the social dimension of European higher education. It focuses on the social and economic conditions of student life. It also investigates temporary international mobility. The project provides reliable and insightful cross-country comparisons. This is the eighth such survey with 30 countries participating (Ireland has participated in all previous rounds since 2000). The survey is co-ordinated in Europe by the German Centre for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW). 


The survey is a valuable source of data to inform policy making at national and international level. Every effort has been taken to reduce the number of questions in the survey and provide information on Irish students attending higher education institutions that is not collated through other means. These include data on a number of issues that affect Irish students such as commuting patterns, accommodation, income, expenditure and student well-being.
