Q: Why is my institution’s participation important?

A: The survey is about your institution's satisfaction level with students. This will help assess the representative's views and experiences with the institutions. The survey results provide insights into students' opinions and behaviours that can be used to make important decisions.

Q:  If an institution is awarded an IOH certificate, does that confer the status of a QS I-GAUGE rated institution?

A: This project checks the experiences of students to know their level of happiness with the institution. The successful outcome of this project honours the institution with a certificate. This does not confer that the institution is rated by QS I-GAUGE. The rating process is governed by a methodology on various parameters.

Q: Will my answers be shared with the institution?

A: One of the most important aspects of this survey is to understand your experiences as a student.
