Unfortunately 1 in 7 students experience a serious physical or sexual assault whilst at university (NUS 2010 Hidden Marks). Due to our society, a lot of people aren’t aware of what sexual harassment is, an example that people often brush off their shoulders is when somebody grabs your bum, this is assault.

In particular this survey asks about your…

  1. experiences of sexual harassment
  2. experiences of sexual violence and assault
  3. experiences of intimate partner violence
  4. knowledge of how to support a friend
  5. awareness of services available to support students with these experiences

We will use the responses to this survey to inform the development of support services and training at the university. As part of this, we are currently working on a range of activities and projects related to healthy relationships and sexual violence in students. You can find out more about this work by visiting our website: https://www.yorksj.ac.uk/student-services/healthy-relationships/

If you are uncomfortable doing the survey but still want more information on what support you can receive if you have experiences of sexual assault or domestic violence, please go to this link:


At the end of the survey, you can enter your email address to enter a prize draw to win a £25 Amazon voucher as a thank you for taking the time to do the survey.  The prize draw does not affect your privacy as your responses are still anonymous.
