UQ researchers are looking for students who are studying in a health field to complete an anonymous online study about their perceptions of working in aged care.

The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the demand for graduates to deliver health services within aged care facilities. This study aims to better understand students’ perceptions about working in aged care.

We would like ask students studying in a health field a series of questions relating to perceptions about aged care workers, aged care work, and working in aged care. There are no right or wrong answers; we only request that your answers reflect your honest opinions.

Participants are asked to fill out two online surveys that are expected to take 20 minutes in total (e.g. 10 minutes for part 1; 10 minutes for part 2). Each survey will be completed one week apart. You will be able to complete this survey in your own time, on your own computer, mobile phone, or compatible device.


To participate in this study you must be:

1) Over 18 years of age and;

2) Studying in a health field.

Participant Benefits 

Upon completion of the two surveys, you have the option to enter a draw for the chance to win one of five $20 gift cards. Contact information for the prize draw is not linked to survey responses. The winners will be randomly selected and notified at the end of the survey period.
