The International Student Barometer, ISB, is one of the largest surveys for international students, that investigates and compares international students' expectations and perceptions of the university during their study time, from application to graduation.

The survey contains questions about the education, reception, career support, study environment and the reasons for choosing Stockholm University. The survey also evaluates what the students value most and if they would recommend Stockholm University to others.
The results are compared with other international and Swedish universities participating in the survey this year. All departments at Stockholm University will be able to access the results from ISB during the spring.

Stockholm University has previously participated in the survey in 2010, 2011, 2013, 2015 and 2016, and the results från the survey are used as a basis for development work.

As a thank you for participating in the ISB, we will plant a tree for each student who will answer the survey. Trees are planted in East Africa in collaboration with Vi-skogen.
