Abstract

The survey, conducted by the University of Tampere for its second-year students in 2012, examines tutoring, progress with studies, and planning of studies.

Studies were first charted by asking the respondents to what extent they agreed with a number of statements relating to studies and study progress (e.g. "University studies have met my expectations", "I have progressed in my studies according to my plans"). Satisfaction with student tutoring was surveyed.

Planning of studies was examined with questions about the usefulness of the personal study plan (HOPS), support received from the university when planning studies, and own initiative in searching for information supporting planning. Things that had negatively affected progress of studies were charted. Regarding employment, the respondents were asked whether they had worked during the previous academic year and how many hours per week.

Finally, the respondents were asked whether they studied full-time or part-time and whether they planned to go on student exchange.

Background variables included the respondent's age, gender, education prior to university studies, field of study, school, and number of credits.
