The Danish Student Survey is an important tool to help the university provide a good environment for learning and study to all students – and it is used in the ongoing work to maintain and improve the study and teaching environment on individual degree programmes. The 2023 Danish Student Survey will ask about your academic and social well-being, teaching outcomes, experiences with stress and loneliness, sexism and much more.
The results of the Danish Student Survey 2023 will also form the basis of AU's own assessment of the teaching environment, which is carried out every 3 years (last time in 2020). The purpose of this assessment is to review the university's psychological, physical and aesthetic teaching environment and to draw up action plans at faculty and degree programme level.

Since the introduction of the Education Environment Act in 2004, all Danish universities are legally committed to make this type of study.
From 2007 to 2017, AU carried out its own study environment survey every three years. In autumn 2020, AU's own survey was integrated into the Danish Agency for Higher Education and Science's national survey the Danish Student Survey for the first time. This survey was conducted again in 2021 and will from now on be conducted every two years - next time in 2023.
