    Hello!

    I want to do a PhD on specific subject; it includes designing and conducting a survey.

    My first question is which universities have a good department on designing and conducting a survey?

    My second question is : when planning and conducting a survey who is paying for all the printing of the questionnaires and the postal expences in order to send (and then receive the completed) the questionnaires to the participants? The Uni or the student? :confused: In case I get a scolarship, who?

    Thank you!

    This seems about quantitative and qualitative research, and many (if not all) unis should be able to accommodate with that.

    I know that the majority of the unis can support a PhD proposal which contains a survey.
    I wouldn't ask in a forum for the self-evident...
    My question is which are the best.

    Ok. The staff are likely to have considerable experience in various methods (that include designing surveys etc) anyway. Also, training offered by the uni is for the most part generic. For example, the school might host training sessions in designing surveys. There's lots of books etc on this kind of thing anyway, and self teaching can be a good way for this.
