Sur­vey to quiz stu­dents on ‘study drugs’

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

CURTIN-BASED re­searchers are ask­ing WA univer­sity and Tafe stu­dents to take part in an on­line sur­vey about use of sub­stances that they be­lieve help them study.

Open to 18-29 year-olds en­rolled as a stu­dent at any WA univer­sity or Tafe, the study is ex­am­in­ing at­ti­tudes to and use of “study drugs”.

Re­searchers from the Na­tional Drug Re­search In­sti­tute at Curtin Univer­sity are also look­ing at whether fi­nan­cial and other pres­sures on stu­dents, such as bal­anc­ing work and study, in­flu­ence use. The on­line sur­vey is anony­mous and stu­dents do not have to have used “study drugs” to par­tic­i­pate.

The sur­vey can be ac­cessed via Face­book, at face­book.com/study­drugs and the NDRI web­site, ndri.curtin.edu.au.

Those who com­plete the sur­vey can en­ter a prize draw as ac­knowl­edg­ment of their con­tri­bu­tion to the project.

Study leader Si­mon Len­ton said: “We re­ally want stu­dents in WA to tell us what they think about use of these sub­stances.”
