This survey is now closed. We had a fantastic response to the inquiry. Thank you to everyone who took the time to let us know about their experience as a student.


You know students are being screwed over. 

We know students are being screwed over.

And it's time to do something about it. 

Chlöe Swarbrick has teamed up with student unions across the country to launch a people's inquiry into student wellbeing. With your help, we hope to get a thorough snapshot into life as a student today, to build the case for a total reset of student support. 

We need 3,800 students across the country to complete this survey so we can get a thorough look at what life is really like for students. Can you be one of them?
