The Institute for Advanced Studies (IHS) was carrying out the Student Social Survey 2019 on behalf of the Austrian Federal Ministry of Education, Science and Research (BMBWF).

In spring 2019, all students in Austria have received an e-mail from their higher education institution inviting them to participate in the online survey.

The survey, which has been carried out at regular intervals since the 1970s and covers a wide spectrum of topics relating to the social situation of students, is one of the most important source of information and a key decision basis for higher education policy in Austria.

The results of the current survey were published in June 2020.

Frequently asked questions and answers regarding the Student Social Survey can be found in our FAQs.
