General election 2015: survey of university staff now open

The Times Higher Education general election survey is seeking the views of all UK higher education employees on the upcoming election

April 1, 2015

The survey is now closed. Thank you for your interest.


To take part in the survey, which takes only a couple of minutes to complete, all you need is a functioning UK university email address.

We will use the responses to put together a picture of how the UK university sector feels about the upcoming general election, and how the workforce intends to vote.

John Gill, editor of THE, said: “We ran a survey in the build-up to the Scottish independence referendum, and it provided a real insight into the voting intentions of academics, professional and support staff at UK institutions. Now, as the general election approaches, we’re asking the question again.

“It’s being billed as one of the most unpredictable elections in history, so it will be fascinating to find out how those working in higher education are planning to vote.”

Your responses will be kept anonymous, and at no point will you be contacted by THE, nor will we pass your details on to any third parties.

The survey will close on 17 April.
