Thank you for considering taking part in our research project.
We are a research group, within the Departments of Psychology and Psychiatry at the University of Cambridge, specialising in
on-line psychological research. This research project is testing if there is any link between what you as parents studied at university and
how your child is developing.
Who can take part?
If you are a parent and a graduate you can take part. You will be asked questions about you, about your biological child(ren), and about
the other parent of your biological child(ren). You can provide this information anonymously – we don’t need to know your names.
The study has been approved by the Psychology Research Ethics Committee at Cambridge University.
What happens if you volunteer?
Participation takes no more than 10 minutes. We are interested in which degree you (and your partner, if applicable) studied at university
and what your current occupation is.
Can I take further tests after this?
After completing this brief project, you have the option to volunteer on our main website so that we can let you know about other research
projects that you can take part in.
This involves providing more information about yourself and your biological children through questionnaires. If you prefer, you can
finish after providing the information for the Graduate Parents project and not go on to register as a volunteer.
Click here for the Information Sheet, which provides information about the study results and how to withdraw from the study. Please also
discuss this project with your family to ensure they are happy for you to provide information about them.
All the information collected about you is confidential and will not be disclosed to anyone else, without your consent. Records are securely
held and are only available to the research team, including the webmaster (Keith Gravell, Cambridge Web Projects).
You may opt out at any time and we will remove your details from our volunteer database.
