The UPP Foundation and HEPI commissioned Public First to run the polling and analysis for this report. (The previous iteration, ran in 2021, can be found here.)
Public First polled 1,994 adults over the age of 18 in England between from 26 to 31 of August 2022. The polling sample and questions were related to universities and higher education institutions in England due to the devolved nature of higher education in the UK. Research was carried out online, and results weighted to be representative by interlocked age and gender, region and social grade. Quota and weighting targets were matched to those used in the 2021 report to enable comparisons between the answers.
The paper is also available on the UPP Foundation website at https://upp-foundation.org/upp-foundation-and-hepi-public-attitudes-to-higher-education-2022/.
