Research priorities to meet your needs; surveys on admissions practices

UK NARIC has published its quarterly Information Development Plan. This sets out our research priorities for April-June 2020 in response to key developments and member feedback. Many thanks to those who completed surveys to inform this plan. We require some further help from you with two new surveys (each takes only 5 minutes) - please see below in this story.

Alongside charting and responding to the COVID crisis in international education, the plan sets out our research and engagement priorities with many key themes such as English language, grading, higher education readiness and transnational education that have emerged from member feedback.

Our research work will focus on key countries of interest as identified by our members in the survey, reflecting both principal and emerging markets.
 
Two new surveys: we’re trying to get specific insight into admissions practices to enable us to tailor our research to your needs: for example, on details of admissions deadlines. Please follow the links to the surveys - thank you for your help!
 
If you’re working in college and higher education admissions, we’d like to hear about how your institution is responding to the crisis in terms of admissions deadlines, intakes and checking English language evidence – the survey should take no more than 5 minutes and the findings will be used to further tailor our upcoming special reports and member resources on the impact of COVID-19 on international assessment and English language tests.
 
The second survey is on Indian Bachelor degrees:
We're currently researching how UK universities assess three-year Indian Bachelor degrees for admission to Master's degree programmes. The survey should take 5 minutes and forms part of a wider study, designed to gather more nuanced information on the different kinds of Indian Bachelor degrees and awarding institutions. The findings will be made available to members later this year.

Many thanks again for your engagement with us on these issues.
