Student Carers

Thank you for taking the time to complete the Student Carers Survey. Your contributions will be used to assist the 2013 Student Carers Recognition and Support Campaign run by the University of Sydney's Student Representative Council (SRC) Disabilities & Carers Collective.

This survey is intended to gather personal stories of those who have experience with any Australian tertiary education institution whilst being a carer.
**Please note that if you attend a university other than Sydney University, your survey data may be passed along to your institution.

If you would like more information on the campaign or the collective, please contact Sarah at
