This report considers the findings of a year-long research project into the resilience of second year undergraduate students at the University of Leeds. The project sought to understand more about existing levels of student resilience, and how their resilience might be supported by higher education providers. 35 members of staff and 55 students were interviewed, alongside 185 students completing a survey designed to measure existing levels of resilience. The report includes the survey questions and analysis of the responses, plus recommendations.
