What's your Parent Persona?

We’ve developed a new online tool to help you understand your parenting style when it comes to supporting your child’s tertiary study plans. You'll also get some tips for helping them on their journey post-high school.

The quiz identities four key parent personas: Magpie, Emu, Possum and Penguin.

Take the quiz to find out which animal is your parent persona.

The Parent Persona quiz is based on the research USC Associate Professor Maria Raciti and fellow National Centre for Student Equity in Higher Education (NCSHE) members conducted as part of the Social Marketing Strategy for Widening Tertiary Education Participation in Low SES Communities field report.
