IAU 2nd global survey on the impact of Covid-19 on higher education

12 March 2021

The International Association of Universities (IAU) launched the second IAU global survey on the impact of Covid-19 on higher education, open until 15 April. The survey is available in English, French, and Spanish.

Aimed at gathering substantial data on the ways global higher education systems are affected by the pandemic from an institutional standpoint, the survey includes questions about the challenges encountered in four different areas:

  • Governance and financing,
  • Teaching and learning,
  • Research,
  • Societal/community engagement.

The results will be shared not only within the international higher education community, but also among global policy and decision-makers. IAU endeavours to raise concerns of universities and other higher education institutions in the current context by providing evidence-based data to underline the seriousness of the impact of COVID-19 on higher education and society at the global level.

The survey report will feed into the UNESCO World Higher Education Conference 2021, a multistakeholder intergovernmental event aimed at defining the future of higher education.
