Welcome to the University of Oxford’s survey “Experiences of the UK Immigration System”
To show our gratitude, we’ll be giving away 10 £100 Tesco vouchers among participants
The survey will take you about 10-15 minutes to complete
Why does your opinion matter?
We’d like to hear about your experiences living in the UK as a non-UK citizen. Hundreds of thousands of people go through the UK’s immigration system every year, but little is known about whether their experiences are positive or negative. By answering our survey, you are helping researchers get better information about the impacts of immigration policies on individuals. This will help us identify ways to improve UK migration system and better support non-UK citizens living here.
What will the survey cover?
We will ask you about your time in the UK, such as, for example, when you moved and your future plans. We will also ask you about your experiences applying for a visa or immigration status—for example, how difficult it was to apply.
Who is conducting this research?
The survey was designed by a team of researchers based at the University of Oxford, the Centre on Migration, Policy and Society (COMPAS) and the Migration Observatory.
Who has funded this research?
We have received funding from the University of Oxford and the following philanthropic organisations: Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Unbound Philanthropy and the Barrow Cadbury Trust.
Your details and answers to this survey will be confidential. This means these data will be safely stored in a password-protected electronic file on the University of Oxford’s secure servers. Only the researchers directly involved in the project can access the data.
This project has been reviewed by the Central University Research Ethics Committee and received ethics clearance through the School of Anthropology and Museum Ethnography Research Ethics Committee (reference number SAME_C1A_22_083).
