Researchers at the University of York are looking for trans people to take part in a study into the feelings of belonging and safety of transgender students in UK universities.

The study is designed to explore the parts of university life that improve feelings of belonging and safety for transgender students (specifically in relation to their trans identity). The results of this exploration will be used to assess whether university policies properly address the needs of transgender students and what changes may be needed for future policies.

You'll be required to complete a short questionnaire (5-10 minutes) consisting of questions regarding your sense of safety and belonging in university, and what would improve your university experience as a trans person. The questionnaire does not require personal or institutional identifying information.
