Graduation Survey

The Graduation Survey asks the opinions of graduates of Bachelor's, Diploma or Master degrees about their completed studies and their experiences at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.

Retrospective assessments and feedback from graduates provides a basis to point out supporting and less supporting factors and conditions during their time of study at the Academy. The results, which are evaluated specifically for each program and for the Academy at large, gives an overview of the qualities of the Academy as perceived by students and provides suggestions for improvements or further developments, particularly so in the following areas:

  • Access to programs of study
  • Curricula, competencies and skills taught
  • Teaching and didactic methods
  • Feedback to and supervision from teachers
  • Service and support
  • Infrastructure
  • General academic conditions
  • Equality of opportunity and anti-discrimination

A three-year data cycle allows for a broad analysis of the current situation and the evaluation of measures taken during the period under consideration. The continuous use of the tool and systematic reflection aim to help create optimal conditions for studying and teaching as well as for research and the artistic development of students at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna.
