Our follow-up survey on the wellbeing of architecture students is now complete


Thank you to all those who participated in our survey, we are now analysing the results, and look forward to reporting these in the near future!

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 asked 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 was for everyone studying architecture, including bachelors, masters and postgraduate students.

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.

Participation was entirely voluntary, anonymous, and confidential. Completing the survey took around 15 minutes, and over 500 people completed the survey.
