|Familiar, modern, innovative and beautiful - satisfaction with Hof University increases significantly|
When it comes to personal support for students, Hof University of Applied Sciences achieves top scores throughout Germany. This is the result of the annual Universum Student Survey conducted by the employer branding consultancy Universum, part of the StepStone Group, in which the image of universities was analyzed. According to the survey, the general satisfaction ratings for Hof University also increased noticeably within the last year. Particularly appreciated are also the excellent research, the friendly environment and the good affordability of studying in Hof.
The brand analysis was conducted nationwide from October 2020 to March 2021. The survey included the evaluations of over 53,000 students at German universities, 374 of whom study at Hof University of Applied Sciences. Criteria from the fields of "image & reputation", "culture & student life", "employability & career opportunities" and the quality of the education offered were evaluated.
Familiar atmosphere to feel at home
When asked about their first associations with Hof University, there were only a few changes compared to the previous year. The terms "familiar", "modern", "small", "personal" and "beautiful" received the most mentions here, as in 2020. However, the term "innovative" is new in the field of characteristics most associated with the university.
Professional development strengthened
Students were also asked to rate how well their university met various - in this case predefined - criteria. Here, four areas were rated significantly better than in 2020: the "Focus on professional development of the university" was recognized by 43 percent of respondents (previous year: 25%), the "Good availability of learning spaces" was confirmed by 52 percent (previous year: 34%) and a "Creative and dynamic atmosphere" was attested to by 44 percent (previous year. 30%) of their university. Excellent research" also received significantly higher approval ratings than in last year's survey, with 28 instead of 13 percent. Particularly and predominantly positive ratings were given to the friendly and open environment, the affordability of studies, the quality of teaching and the promotion of innovative spirit.
In contrast, the assessment of employment opportunities after graduation dipped a little. This value fell from 41 to 35 percent - a decline that is certainly understandable in the Corona crisis with its economic uncertainties.
Over two thirds would study again in Hof
The general satisfaction with Hof University also developed very positively over the past year. On a scale of 1 (not at all satisfied) to 10 (extremely satisfied), it now reached 8.0 points. This corresponds to an increase of 0.3 points compared to the previous year. The German average here is noticeably lower at 7.1 points. There was also an improvement in the question of whether students would study at Hof again: 67 percent of respondents said they would choose Hof University again at any time. The German average is four percent lower here.
Brand essence confirmed
"Familiar, modern and innovative - that is our brand essence, with which we advertise nationally and internationally and which is once again confirmed in this analysis. In particular, our excellent support ratio between students and teaching staff repeatedly achieves the very best ratings nationwide. However, we are of course also satisfied that the quality of research and teaching is increasingly being recognized. In particular, we would like to add the aspect of sustainability - in line with our development concept towards a green tech university - to our public image even more strongly," sums up university president Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Jürgen Lehmann.
Overall, male students were slightly more satisfied than female students, while the satisfaction of bachelor's students was approximately at the same high level of master's students.
