We are a group of researchers based at the University of Oxford and the University of Southampton, and we are looking to invite university student, 18 years old or more, to take part in our study by answering a series of online questionnaire. Through these questionnaires, we aim to better understand daily mobility, use of greenspace and self-reported physical and mental health in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are therefore inviting you to take part in our study! To participate, you must be currently enrolled at either (a) Oxford Brookes University, (b) the University of Oxford, (c) the University of Southampton or (d) Solent University. Completing the online questionnaire should take between 20 to 30 minutes of your time. You will be asked to answer a few questions about yourself, your daily outings, your use of greenspace, and your self-reported physical and mental health, as well as some COVID-19 questions. At the end, if you accept to participate in follow-up phases and provide an email address, you will be contacted again to complete a shorter version of this questionnaire on other occasions. All information will be held confidentially by the research team, no names nor email address will be saved, and this study is being conducted independently of your college or course. There is no obligation to take part. This study has received Research Ethics Approval by the University of Oxford ethics committee (SSH_OSGA_C1_21_004).
To compensate you for your time, at the end of each completed questionnaire, you will have the chance to enter a lottery to win one of many £10-50 Amazon voucher.
