Are You a Carer at University?

The Centre for Higher Education Equity and Diversity Research is seeking people who have studied at an Australian university while providing unpaid care and support to family members (of origin or choice) and/or friends who have a disability, mental illness, chronic condition, terminal illness, an alcohol or other drug issue, or an older person with care needs.

The survey takes about 15-20 minutes.

This research is being conducted by La Trobe University’s Centre for Higher Education Equity and Diversity Research in collaboration with Carers Victoria.

The purpose of the study is to improve our understanding of the experiences of carers in higher education and to inform university policies and practices to better support carers to succeed at university.
