ESU – Survey on Academic Freedom, Institutional Autonomy and Academic Integrity from a Student Perspective

The European Students Union (ESU)  recently published a report on the topic of academic freedom, institutional autonomy, and academic integrity developed in the framework of the “Academic Freedom – Time to Act!” project, which aims to deepen the knowledge on defending, monitoring and promoting Academic Freedom in Higher Education in Europe.

The report is based on the results of a survey conducted between May and September 2022 with the participation of 645 students from 30 countries. Since the debate around these topics is centred on the perspective of the academic staff and the researchers, the survey focused on the student’s perspective, to highlight the gaps in information, their needs, and their perceptions of academic freedom.
