Participate in our survey

We are also inviting first year students who commenced their studies in Trimester 1 (February/ March) 2023 to complete a brief confidential survey about their experiences and perceptions of the Respectful Relationships modules. Complete the survey and enter the draw to win one of ten $50 supermarket vouchers.

The survey contains a series of open-ended and multi-choice questions and will take about 20-25 minutes to complete. There will be questions on what influenced their decision to complete/not complete the Respectful Relationships modules, your views on the university's provision of relationship education, what you liked/did not like about the modules, what could be improved, and what you learned from completing the modules.

The research purely focuses on participants' experiences and perceptions of completing the Respectful Relationship modules. There will be no questions about personal experiences of relationship difficulties or harm.

To take part you need to be a first year student who started (either on campus or via distance learning) in February/March 2023 and currently reside in New Zealand.
