  • Understanding the factors which affect whether autistic individuals complete university.

    This research is being conducted by Dr. Eilidh Cage, Rhoda Breakell and Louise Vinales from the Department of Psychology at Royal Holloway, University of London. Our research focuses on understanding the factors that might influence autistic individuals completing their undergraduate studies. We hope that your answers will help us understand the factors that affect autistic individuals’ experiences at university and the reasons behind why some people do not complete their course. We are looking to hear from both people who completed university and those who did not.
