The Economics Network

Improving economics teaching and learning for over 20 years

Economics Network Students Survey 2012

In 2011-2012, the Economics Network carried out its sixth survey of Economics students, covering both undergraduates and postgraduates. The survey was conducted online, as part of the Economics Network's ongoing research programme into teaching and learning in Economics. Questions from our previous surveys were used with an additional question on the induction process. The survey aimed to provide valuable information on students' perceptions of studying economics, including identifying strengths and weaknesses in the learning and teaching of economics. Results from the previous surveys have been used in running departmental and national workshops and students’ focus groups, as well as to inform curricula development in departments.
