Do you think that studying architecture has affected your mental wellbeing? How and in what ways?
Please tell us about your mental wellbeing while studying architecture.
Our first survey and focus groups with architecture students conducted in 2021 generated important insights on the wellbeing of people studying architecture in Australia. This second survey will enable the research team to track changes in the wellbeing of architecture students over the last two years.
The survey will ask about study-related wellbeing, your sense of professional identity, perceptions of support, and the impact of architectural study culture and practices on your mental wellbeing.
This survey is for everyone studying architecture, including bachelors, masters and postgraduate students.
If you completed our 2021 survey, we encourage you to complete this survey again in 2023. Or, complete this survey for the first time.
This follow-up survey is an important component of the research project. It builds on the knowledge established through the first survey and focus groups, and on earlier work undertaken by others. The project is funded by the Australian Research Council (LP190100926), and has been approved by the Monash University Human Research Ethics Committee (Project ID: 36237).
The data we collect from the survey will ultimately inform resources, toolkits and practical advice to help architectural students and educational institutions to better support their people and create positive cultures.
But we encourage you to take part, share your experiences, and give us your thoughts!
Participation is entirely voluntary, anonymous, and confidential. Completing the survey will take around 15 minutes – so grab a cup of tea and settle in to contribute to a better understanding of the experience of architecture students, and a contribution to greater wellbeing for all!
The survey will be open until October 3.
