Teaching & Learning

The teaching and learning profile of Reutlingen University is designed to enable students to act professionally and responsibly in the modern workplace. It is characterised by student-centredness, value orientation, technology support, and the willingness to rethink teaching and learning as a whole. As instructors, students and staff, we shape the university together as a place of proactive, self-regulated, constructive and social teaching and learning.

Mission statement on teaching

In accordance with the educational mission, teaching is a key topic at Reutlingen University, to which we devote special attention within the framework of the current Strategy and Development Plan. This is reviewed and adapted every four years in a university-wide participatory process in order to formulate fundamental common principles and values for teaching, i.e. the mission statement on teaching.



Quality in studies, teaching & further education

We understand quality management as a strategic development task which thrives on the continuous implementation and review of organisational quality goals and quality-improving measures by involving all university members in the establishment of a joint philosophy.

Graduate survey

Reutlingen University conducts an annual survey among graduates from the preceding examination year on their degree and professional career. For this purpose, Reutlingen University, like many other universities in Baden-Württemberg, commissions the Institute for Applied Statistics (ISTAT).

ISTAT Graduate Survey

Reutlingen University interviews all graduates in different ways:

  1. There are graduation surveys which all graduates receive after completing their studies and which are conducted by Reutlingen University itself.
  2. There is the annual survey of all graduates of the preceding examination year concerning their completed studies at Reutlingen University and their (professional) career. Reutlingen University and many other universities in Baden-Württemberg commission the Institute for Applied Statistics (ISTAT) to conduct this graduate survey.

This information is of great importance to the university and its quality management. The experiences of former students can significantly contribute to the further development and systematic improvement of the degree programmes.

Among other things, graduates are surveyed on the following topics:

  • Satisfaction with their studies at Reutlingen University
  • Career entry and current employment
  • Application of the qualifications acquired during their studies

In addition to the regular teaching evaluation and other surveys during and at the end of the degree programme, the graduate survey is another tool for quality assurance in studying and teaching and is operationally implemented by the Quality Management Office for Studies and Teaching.

Your data will be handled in accordance with the data protection declaration for the graduate survey

Since 2021, the graduate survey at Reutlingen University has been part of the nationwide "Kooperationsprojekt Absolventenstudien" (KOAB-Projekt) and is coordinated by the Institute for Applied Statistics (ISTAT). The KOAB project is a scientific research project in which more than 60 universities participate and in which the questionnaire of the graduate survey was developed.

Within the framework of the project, about 70,000 university graduates are interviewed annually about their career paths. Each participating university receives its own individual results and national comparative values.

Graduates of the examination year 2021 with a graduation date between 01.09.2020 and 31.08.2021.

This link will take you to the questionnaire via a data-secure and anonymous online access. You can take part in the survey using the personal access code provided in the e-mail cover letter. It is possible to interrupt the answering of the questions at any time and continue at a later time. The access code must be kept for this purpose.
