Participants Wanted: National and Cultural Identity of TCKs and UK Domiciled Students

Thursday 14 October 2021

We invite you to participate in a research project investigating the influence of childhood mobility on student identity at the University of St Andrews. Participants can choose to take part in a survey, semi-structured interview, or both. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and the interview will be between 30-45 minutes. A £20 Amazon voucher will be randomly drawn from each of the survey and interview participants (two £20 Amazon vouchers are available to win).

We are interested in students who are:

  • between 18-25 years old
  • enrolled at the University of St Andrews
  • UK domiciled (i.e. you have lived in the UK since birth) OR are a Third Culture Kid (i.e. you have lived outside of your parent’s home culture for a minimum of two years before the age of 18)

If you are interested, please get in contact using the details below. You will then be given a Participant Information Sheet that further details my research and have the opportunity to ask questions, before being asked whether you consent to participate.
