Survey for International Students
We would like to invite you to participate in an online survey that investigates why some international university students stay in the UK after graduation. The survey will only take 14 minutes to complete and you will have an opportunity to enter a lottery for a £10 voucher at the end (there are several vouchers available). You may only take this survey if you are an international student (i.e. you were not born in the UK) and you are not an exchange student (on programmes such as Erasmus, etc.).

The survey is part of academic research undertaken by Filip Němeček, a DPhil student at the University of Oxford, under the supervision of prof. N.D. de Graaf. The findings of this research will be published in scientific outlets such as peer-reviewed academic journals. All your responses will remain strictly confidential. This project has been reviewed by, and received ethics clearance through, the Oxford Sociology Department Research Ethics Committee (DREC).
