What's involved in the study
The study involves completing an online questionnaire. It will take around 20 minutes and ask questions about your current attitudes and lifestyle and how these have changed recently due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the transition from high-school to university.
Once complete, we will ask whether you are willing to take part in future studies. If you agree, you will just need to supply your e-mail address and we will be in touch within a few months.
If you agree to take part in our study you will be asked to give your consent before taking part.
To be eligible to participate in this study, you must have just completed your A-levels and be a current first-year university student.
What you'll get for taking part
You will be entered into a prize draw for an Amazon voucher worth £50. Your data will also be invaluable to researchers in understanding how young people develop their habits and values.
All the information provided will be confidential. You would not provide your name and only the research team will have access to your data.
If you choose to take part in the prize draw and/or future studies, we will ask for your contact details. Your contact details will be stored separately from your answers to the questionnaire. All of the information you share with us will be stored confidentially and securely on the University of Bath secure server, and only members of the research team will have access to it.
If you do not choose to take part in the prize draw or in future studies, we will not ask for your contact details. Your answers to the questionnaire will be stored anonymously and securely on the University of Bath secure server, and only members of the research team will have access to them. The data will be used for scientific purposes, it will be stored securely, and it will be kept for an indefinite period of time.
