Participant survey

Understanding students' perceptions and experiences of Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington's respectful relationships modules

Online modules on respectful relationships are offered by the University as part of first year university students’ induction to university life. We are interested in finding out about students’ perceptions and experiences are of these modules so we can understand factors which influence students’ decisions whether to complete these or not, what is useful about the modules, and what could be improved.

We are inviting both students’ who completed the respectful relationships modules as part of their induction to university and those who did not complete these to take part in a confidential research project about this.

The research will involve taking part in a one-off focus group which will take around 60 minutes. Participants will be provided with a $20 voucher as a thank you for their time.

To take part you need to be a first year student at Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington who started their studies (either on campus or via distance learning) in February/March 2022 and currently reside in New Zealand.
