    Thanks: This is the Questionnaire


    I am a student studying Geography at The University of Edinburgh. As part of the first year human geography assessment, I have chosen to research the extent to which UK students perceive their country as ‘racially harmonious’ and whether the media and immigration policies influence this. I would be most grateful if you could assist me by completing this short questionnaire.
