The EUROSTUDENT Talks webinar series presents speakers on various EUROSTUDENT-related issues, such as project results, dissemination activities, and policy-relevant topics.
Students With Impairments in Higher Education - Supported Enough or Rather Left Out?
According to the EUROSTUDENT data, on average, a quarter of students with impairments (SWI) often feel out of place in higher education – this figure is 10 percentage points higher than among students without an impairment. How satisfied are SWI with their experiences in the academic environment? Are they supported enough? What could be done in higher education institutions (both by the staff and fellow students) and by policy-makers to better facilitate both academic and social integration of SWI? Come and join EUROSTUDENT Talks webinar on the 27th of January at 11CET to find out more about this topic! We are happy to welcome Jakob Rosin, a radio journalist, leader of Estonian Blind Union and an alumnus of Tallinn University, who will share his own experience in higher education and reflect the subject in broader, policy sense as well.

Academic Satisfaction of International Students at Irish Higher Education Institutions
EUROSTUDENT data has important use for higher education policy makers at national and European level, and also informs and enables research into students' lives in Europe. But how are researchers using EUROSTUDENT data? Join this webinar where Mairéad Finn (Trinity College Dublin) and Georgiana Mihut (University of Warwick) talk about their academic article which sought to understand what explains higher levels of academic satisfaction among international students, including concepts of cultural distance and marketization. While their analyses was situated in the Republic of Ireland, it has implications for other European countries.
