Your responses are entirely confidential and your anonymity is protected when you take this survey.
Technical delivery of the survey and collection of responses are managed entirely by a third party contractor.
This third party contractor needs an identifier to link your responses to broad background information like age, gender, full-time or part-time, broad area of study, etc. which your higher education institution provided securely to the third party contractor.
This is why we need your student number and month of birth.
This information is never shared with your higher education institution.
