Categories: News

Diane Murdoch, a lecturer studying a Master’s degree in autism at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, is  conducting a research project into course choice and college experiences of students with an Autistic Spectrum Condition in Further Education  in the context of her studies.

 

If you are an adult with an Autism Spectrum Condition (age 16 or over), Diane is interested in your choice of college course and your experiences at college.

 

Your participation in this study will help to give an insight into why people with ASC make certain course choices and how this might be reflected in college experiences.

 

If you wish to take part in this study you will be asked to answer an online questionnaire. Your consent will be deemed to be given when you submit the online questionnaire. It should take about 20 minutes to complete the whole questionnaire, but you may want to take longer by giving longer responses.

 

Information Sheet:

 

Before completing the questionnaire, you would be asked to read the participant information sheet which includes details of the study. This includes details and reassurance about how the study will use the information you provide in a confidential manner. The Participant Information Sheet can be found here.
