Research project: Developing active social connections in a newly adopted setting

25 Aug 2020

International and domestic USC students: How connected do you feel socially? Would you be interested in completing a brief, anonymous questionnaire?

Many students move geographically to attend university. Some from overseas, others across state/s of Australia. For these students, the development of an active social network can sometimes be a bit challenging. Local students, transitioning from high school, can also find the new social world of university a bit daunting. We are currently conducting research aimed at improving understanding of how universities can support students to develop active social connections in a newly adopted setting.

We are looking for international and domestic students to complete an anonymous online survey, that will take at most 20 minutes.

If you meet the following criteria, we would really appreciate your input!

  • Over 18 years of age
  • Enrolled at USC
  • An international or domestic student 

We invite you to complete the research questionnaire.

This project has the approval of the University of the Sunshine Coast Ethics Committee: Approval # S201443. If you have any questions relating to the survey please contact the Masters of Counselling student researcher Alishba Arshad at a_a203@student.usc.edu.au, or the chief investigator Dr Trudi Flynn at tflynn@usc.edu.au, School of Social Sciences, USC.
