THE students, from the University of Brighton’s School of Computing, Engineering and Mathematics, completed the Brighton Student Survey for first and second years and the National Student Survey for final year undergraduates.

Money raised through donations from those taking part will go to the Clock Tower Sanctuary, a day centre providing information, advice and guidance to homeless young people, aged 16–25 years, in Brighton and Hove.

Jane Challenger Gillitt, Senior Lecturer, said: “We tried a new way to encourage participation by linking the response rate to cumulative donations to the sponsored charity. It was a success both for us and for this great charity. Thanks to all the students who took part and the staff who supported the initiative.”
