The International Student Barometer* (ISB) from i-graduate is the global benchmark for the international student experience. It enables University of Helsinki to compare satisfaction levels of our international students and to identify specific areas of key importance to them. ISB is part of the student feedback system of the University of Helsinki.

The International Student Barometer (ISB) project aims to gather information on the international student experience both in and outside the classroom environment and will produce aggregated data that will help to inform future policy and practice at an institutional and national level. It is designed specifically to track the decision-making, perceptions, expectations and experiences of students studying outside their home country. Results are compared against national and global benchmarks.

The University of Helsinki has participated five times in the International Student Barometer, a survey targeted at international students. Survey results will be used for developing teaching and other activities.
