The latest Irish Survey of Student Engagement has found that indicator scores for non-Irish students were  higher than for Irish students for all indicators other than Collaborative Learning (Worked with other students on projects or assignments).

A total of 35,850 students from twenty seven higher education institutions participated in the survey in 2017, contributing to an increasingly valuable data set on how students engage with their learning environments. In this context, the survey of student engagement explores the amount of time and effort that students put into their studies and other educationally purposeful activities, and, also, how effectively institutions facilitate, encourage and promote student engagement in activities that are linked to learning.

The results of the survey are intended to add value at institutional level (for students and for staff) and to inform national policy.
