International student and talent survey
Help Oslo and Norway become better at attracting, retaining and matching international talent with companies skills needs by answering a 10 minute survey.
The global competition on high-skilled talent is levelling up every year, and many companies struggle to fill vacant positions. Yet, many of the high-skilled international master and PhD students (like yourself!) intend to stay after graduation, but only a minority do, making it a lost opportunity for Norway and our companies.
This is especially important now, when Norwegian universities have to implement tuition fees for those from outside of the EU/EEA.
With this European benchmark study we want to gather data and information on different markets in order to develop comparable insights on the satisfaction level of the target group - Master students, PhD’s and high-skilled workers.
Are you in any of these categories?
The study will include ranking of decision-making factors, main reasons for arriving to and staying in a country to pursue career opportunities.
Are you an international master/PhD student or a professional working in tech, science or as an engineer?
Please share your experience as an international when it comes to settling in, living and working here by taking this (less than) 10 minute survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XHD22JJ
Who is conducting the survey?
The benchmark study is a collaboration between Oslo Region Alliance/Oslopolitan, European Talent Mobility Forum, Future Place Leadership and Switch to Sweden via Linköping Science Park, funded by Sweden’s innovation agency Vinnova.
The Norway portion of the survey is funded by the Municipality of Oslo, the Department of Business Development and Public Ownership.
