Assessing food access and meal patterns among university students in Australia

This study aims to investigate students' access to food and the meal patterns of international and domestic students in Australian universities.

Can you always get enough food that you want in Australia? What are you eating while completing your current degree?

This study is aiming to investigate students' access to food and the meal patterns of international and domestic students in Australian universities.

You will be invited to complete an online food access survey which will take approximately 15 minutes. You will then be invited to recall what you have eaten in the past 24 hours on two assigned dates through an online platform. Full instruction and support will be provided, and each recall session will take 25-30 minutes.

Your responses will be extremely valuable for our study. You will be eligible for lucky draws after completing each part of the study. There will be 20 winners in two lucky voucher draws.
