What is the ISB?

The International Student Barometer (ISB) is the world’s largest student survey. With feedback from over 2 million students worldwide across all student types, levels and years of study, the ISB is the leading benchmarking tool used to track the international student experience. It tracks and compares the decision-making, expectations, perceptions and intentions of international students from application to graduation.

The ISB is administered by an independent external research company, iGraduate, and provides Flinders University with global, local and customised benchmarks for international student satisfaction and feedback.

Flinders University & ISB

The ISB offers Flinders University’s international students the opportunity to tell us about their experience while studying at Flinders. Flinders utilises the results from the ISB survey to critically appraise satisfaction levels, improve international student services and sanction ongoing development across the University.

We thank all international students who have participated in the ISB survey and provided valuable feedback in the past.
