Data and description

2017-18 2018-19 2019-20 2020-21 2021-22 2022-23
New 19 19 20 20 20 20

Registered 39 43 47 49 49 49
Graduates 13 14 16 17 16 15

New students: these students start their studies from the beginning and for the first time. They may have recognised credits or not.

New SIIU students: these students start their studies from the beginning, registering on a programme for the first time and, in accordance with SIIU criteria, may have fewer than 10 (for a Master's) or 30 (for an undergraduate programme) recognised credits. This set of students may also be referred to as the optimum new entry group. 

Registered students: these students are actively registered on a programme for an academic year. This set of students may also be referred to as the total student population, where registration reservations or cancellations, as well as students with outstanding debts, are not included.

Graduates: these students have passed (passed or accredited) all credits required for a degree programme and, therefore, finished their course regardless of whether they have requested their degree certificate be issued or not.

Academic performance rates

Graduation and drop-out rates in relation to the entry cohort

Graduation Rate 74 % 78 % 74 % 87 % 81 % -
Drop-out Rate 5 % 5 % 5 % 0 % 40 % -

Programme drop-out rate: the percentage of students from a new entry cohort in an academic year who fail to finish their programmes within the timeframe set out in the curriculum, or an additional academic year, and do not enrol for the planned last year on the programme or subsequent academic year. New full-time students are the reference cohort.

Graduate Efficiency Rate 100 % 96 % 97 % 96 % 96 % 90 %

The efficiency rate is defined as the percentage ratio between the total number of credits passed by students throughout the registered programme from which they have graduated, and the total number of credits they effectively registered for. The reference population is the optimum group.

Degree success and performance rates

 

Data and description

2017-18 2018-19 2019-20 2020-21 2021-22 2022-23
Degree Success Rate 100 % 100 % 97 % 97 % 100 % 97 %
Performance Rate 95 % 94 % 91 % 90 % 88 % 88 %

Success rate: the percetage ratio between the number of passed credits and the number of credits taken for assessment.

Performance rate: the percentage ratio between the number of credits passed and the number of credits registered for.

Satisfaction of groups involved

Satisfaction index

 

Data and description

2017-18 2018-19 2019-20 2020-21 2021-22 2022-23
Student satisfaction 3,00 2,15 2,54 2,27 2,18 2,48
PDI satisfaction 2,63 2,29 3,50 3,33 3,12 3,00
PAS satisfaction 3,10 - 3,22 - - -

Student, PDI and PAS satisfaction levels are rated on a scale of 1 to 4, where 1 means ‘not at all satisfied’ and 4 means ‘very satisfied’. They are obtained from the following surveys:

  • Survey of student satisfaction with the study programme (yearly)
  • Survey of satisfaction and identification of needs of teaching and research staff (PDI) (yearly)
  • Biennial survey of satisfaction and identification of needs of administrative and service staff (PAS) who have supported undergraduate and postgraduate studies.

 

Survey participation rates

 

Data and description

2017-18 2018-19 2019-20 2020-21 2021-22 2022-23

PDI participation rate 47 % 69 % 40 % 40 % 53 % 36 %
PAS participation rate 77 % - 72 % - - -

Only the data that meet a double criterion of representativeness have been considered valid: on one hand, reaching 4 answered surveys and, on the other hand, that the number of answered surveys is equal to or greater than 15% of the population
