Abstract

This paper reports on the findings based on an on-line questionnaire administered to a small group of undergraduate students who have to take a compulsory service learning subject. The aims of the study are to investigate whether the goals of the service learning subject have been achieved and to collect more factual information about some implementation issues. The results show that students in general believe they have developed a stronger sense of civic responsibility and that they have improved a number of personal skills. Some facts relating to the administration of the service learning subject uncovered through this study will contribute to the improvement of the overall delivery of this subject as well.
