Hello,

 

I am a 4th year Psychology student at Heriot Watt University. I am inviting you to take part in a study I am carrying out which is investigating the experience of university life of students with autism and students who have developed typically, attending UK based universities. The study uses a questionnaire which includes; information about yourself, how you spend your time at university, your application to university, your adjustment to university life, your experience of lectures, the support at your university and how you feel about your course. The student experience questionnaire has 7 sections and you will be asked to complete 3 additional short questionnaires to control for mood and personality characteristics. The study will take approximately 70 minutes to complete. Participants can be of any age and gender and we are looking for English speakers/readers. You also do not need to have a particular type of diagnosis of autism. The only request is that you have attended university for at least one year.

 

If you would like to take part please PM me as my online survey is linked to my email and has to be sent out via my personal email.

 

Thank you

 

Please note: I am only looking to recruit participants with an ASD who are currently attending university. I also have full ethical approval from my university ethics board, they have viewed this advert and have allowed me to advertise on the internet.

Hi Roxy, 

 

It's standard process to email the mods before posting requests like this - we offer help to make sure that it's worded in autism-friendly terms :)

Hello,

From what I gathered from reading the rules, if anything was not okay it would just get taken down. Also, the wording of my advert has been assessed by my ethics board and so the wording should be autism friendly.

But if there is anything obviously offensive about my post then please let me know :)

Didn't say or mean 'offensive' - it's more about writing for people who are autistic.

 

What I mean has nothing to do with ethics or having it cleared by the board at your uni - what I mean is things like using clear, unambiguous language etc.

 

I'm sure if anyone has questions for you about it, they will certainly ask :)
