This time last year we conducted the first-ever survey of UK Dental Students to identify their financial and wellbeing needs. You can read the results here.
Help us with further research
This year, we are doing a second survey to be able to report on any improvement in the provision or continued gaps in support.
If you are a student: Taking part in our survey will give you the opportunity to provide your opinion on financial and wellbeing issues you may be facing, or have faced whilst at university. It will also ask you about the support currently available and whether this meets your needs.
What if I completed the survey last time? We encourage all dental students to take part, whether this is your first time completing the survey or you got involved last year to get your current opinions as well as a true representation across all the dental schools.
The survey will take up to 15 minutes to complete and gives you the option to be entered into a prize draw to win one of three £100 cash prizes.
If you are not a student: We hope that you will share the survey either by forwarding this web page or by sharing the link on your social media channels so we can reach as many people as possible.
What is the aim?
The answers will help us, and others, to better understand how to assist students across the 16 different dental schools in the UK. It will provide an annual benchmark to identify trends and report on improvements.
To be objective and independent we are working with Ecorys – a research company to help us develop this survey and undertake the analysis. Overall, we hope to discover new things and emerging trends in order to support a greater number of people, as well as improve our offer.
The survey and associated prize draw will close on 27 November 2022.
