According to De Oude, an entirely new generation of students will come to the university, whose school does not know much. "If they want to be successful, they have to respond to social changes, especially the demands of the labor market and the expectations of the next generation," said Rector Miroslav Holeček. UWB wants to know in more detail what the generation of high school students is, how the decision and what it expects from the study.
According to Jan Váně, research leader, one of the most important findings was that of the students who want to study, 86% of them are counted at the brigade, they are still working or they are already working and they want or have to continue their work. "Only five percent said they wanted to study, which means that if the university wants to attract and retain students, the emphasis on practice and the ability to work in the study should be more strongly integrated into the programs than before," he said.
A similar international comparative study on the generation of digital children was published last year by, for example, the British Barnes and Nobles College. According to the Old Testament, however, the UWB study is an extraordinary use of the census method, when the researchers asked the students of the last years at one point in all schools, as in the case of the census. "We have evaluated twice as many questionnaires as in Barnes and Nobles, and we have achieved a record return of 72 percent, which is a unique study, and that's why we have very accurate data," said Frantisek Kalvas, member of the research team.
