Currently there is no student-specific, national research into all the kinds of violence or victimisation uni students experience. How strange is that? :beard:

Obviously at uni, life can be a bit 'bubble-like', so it's possible that what uni students experience could be quite different to what the broader population might experience in relation to things like, sexual violence, harassment, racial violence, micro-aggressions, online violence, etc. That's why it's important to find out what you experience specifically. :yep:

So City, University of London are currently conducting a pilot piece of research into exactly this! They're working with academics and specialists from the University of Surrey, De Montford, Universities UK, and Nat Cen (social research), and this is a national survey.

This project is super interesting and will hopefully lead to bigger projects researching the nasty stuff uni students experience (and hopefully then onto improvements in supporting structures). :heart:

So, if you're enrolled at a UK uni and over 18 years of age, you can participate in the anonymous survey. It takes 15-20 mins.

You can access the survey here >>

Please don't worry about any experience being too big or too small. They just want to get as accurate a picture as possible.

If you find this thread or the survey brings up any need for support, please do reach out for help. You could contact:

This survey is not run by TSR, but we're lending it our support as a national research piece we hope will benefit university students across the board.
This survey is completely optional and does include questions covering special category data (eg. sexuality, gender, faith), and these questions are also completely optional. Please only share information you're comfortable with.
The survey FAQs contain more information, including in relation to privacy and GDPR.

I wasn't sure whether I was supposed to tick "female" or "woman" because apparently there's a difference now :lol:

More than happy to discuss and debate questions about gender if anybody would like. Just start a thread here and I'm more than happy to join in.

However, this thread nor the survey linked in the OP is actually about gender identity. So let's keep this on topic please.
