A Times Higher Education survey is seeking the views of all UK higher education employees ahead of the upcoming general election.

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: “Previous THE election surveys have provided a real insight into the voting intentions of academics, professional and support staff at UK institutions. As the country prepares to go to the polls on 8 June, we’re asking the question again.

“The UK’s decision to leave the European Union means that the results of this election will have a significant impact on the future of UK higher education, so it will be fascinating to find out how those working in the sector 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.
