Scotland decides: tell us what result you want for Scottish universities

Times Higher Education has launched a survey to see whether Scottish university staff believe leaving the UK would be good for their institutions

August 8, 2014

The THE Scottish Referendum Poll is now closed. Thank you for your entries.


With under six weeks to go until Scotland votes on independence, the THE Scottish Referendum Poll is open to all staff at Scottish universities, both academics and administrators.

To participate in the survey, respondents must have a university email address that ends in ac.uk.

Responses will not be revealed to anyone else without consent. Participants in the poll can indicate whether or not they are happy for their answers to be quoted in an article about the results. 

The survey asks how people will vote in the referendum on 18 September, and what outcome they think would be best for Scottish universities.

It is open to all staff at Scottish universities, including those who will not be eligible to vote in the referendum.

Restricting the survey to ac.uk emails is fine but does not make it unique to University staff. e.g. at my university all students, including undergrads, have a permanent ac.uk.address.
Martin - yes that is true, but we will be checking the results to make sure that all the respondents are university staff and not students. Anyone who is not a member of staff at a Scottish university will be removed from the results. David
