Have you or your partner relocated from overseas into Australia for work?
If so, you may be interested in the Couples Coping with International Job Relocations research project.
What is this project about?
Researchers at Griffith University are trying to understand the factors that predict whether or not couples who relocate from overseas into Australia will adjust to their new living and working conditions, work productively, and want to continue living and working in Australia.
Couples taking part will be asked to complete a short, anonymous, online survey which takes about 20 minutes.
Participation is voluntary and responses are anonymous. Partners complete separate surveys and do not need to share responses. Individual survey results are not reported on.
How will this research benefit the Newcomers Network and its subscribers?
The Newcomers Network will be provided with a report of overall findings from this research project. The Newcomers Network will use these findings to help improve the services it provides to Newcomer Network members who have relocated, or will relocate to Australia from overseas. So, by participating in this research, you are helping the Newcomers Network to support its members from overseas.
