What are the keys to flourishing as a university student?


Monday 15 August 2016

What helps you be happy at university? Is it having enough time or money, or feeling in control of your situation?

USC Honours student Sarah Kennedy is investigating what it takes for students to flourish at university. You can help by completing her online survey – it takes about 10 to 15 minutes and is completely anonymous.

Eligibility to participate is limited to current University of the Sunshine Coast students. If you are interested, complete the survey here: 


By taking part, you will help us to understand the student experience at university and find ways to improve students’ wellbeing.
