$10 eGift card for your thoughts on student accommodation

As members of our campus community, your views and opinions are greatly valued. On behalf of the University of Canterbury and Campus Living Villages we wish to extend an invitation to you to participate in the Student Accommodation Survey, a benchmark research study amongst undergraduate and postgraduate students undertaking their studies in New Zealand.

The survey focuses on students’ needs, wants and expectations with regard to student accommodation and is conducted by EduWorld, a global education market research firm. This survey – which mainly consists of multiple choice questions – requires approximately 15 minutes of your time.

The first 400 people who qualify, complete the survey and provide their contact details will receive a $10 flexi eGift card as a thank you for their time. The flexi eGift card can be used as a donation at Child Fund New Zealand or World Animal Protection, or redeemed at iTunes, Domino’s, Farmers, JB Hi-Fi or Magshop. 

Please be assured that your responses to the survey will remain anonymous, any personal information collected by EduWorld is for the sole purpose of fulfilling distribution of the egift cards and will not be shared with the University or used in any other manner.

The survey can be accessed by clicking on the following link (if the link does not load properly please copy and paste the link into your web browser):

We encourage you to complete the survey at your earliest convenience.  Remember, only the first 400 people to complete the survey and provide their contact details will receive a $10 flexi eGift card!

Thank you in advance for your contribution to this important research study and good luck with your studies.

How can UC improve mature students’ experiences?

Mature students’ experience of UC can be markedly different from that of their younger classmates and a study underway is aimed at learning more about how and why.

I have been contracted by Student Services and Communications to talk to students who started their UC journey later. The aim of the study is to gain a better understanding of the distinctive needs of mature students and to understand more about how UC can better engage with them.

If you are an older student who is interested in taking part, or know someone who might be,  please email Ric Stevens at rds65@uclive.ac.nz.

I can meet with you individually or in a small focus group and would be grateful to receive your insights.

Tell me first which of these best describes you:

  • A researcher (PhD or Research Masters).
  • In the Executive Development programme (MBA or similar).
  • A professional developer – looking to upgrade an existing qualification in a similar field in which you already have been working.
  • A late-starter – someone who may have been in the workforce or doing other things who has decided to pursue university study for the first time.
  •  A career transition student – someone who has been in the workforce but decided to change careers to something different.
  • A life-long learner – studying for the love of it.

I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
