Online surveys

Online surveys

  • NHH uses a survey tool named Qualtrics to do online surveys. NHH students may use the tool for free (limited to 6 months)

  • If individuals can be identified directly or indirectly, you must apply to the NSD for permission to collect/store data: http://www.nsd.uib.no/personvern/om/english.html
