University of Sanctuary Survey

The University coat of arms on the entrance to the Agriculture Building. The University has published a short survey for staff and students.

As part of its commitment to become a University of Sanctuary, Newcastle University is conducting research to further its understanding of the experiences and wellbeing needs of staff and students from refugee and asylum-seeking backgrounds.

You are eligible to complete the survey if you are a former, current or prospective Newcastle University student or staff member from a refugee or asylum seeker background or have in some other way been affected by forced displacement.

The survey will take about 5-10 minutes to complete. All responses are anonymous and confidential.

You can complete the survey here:
