Open University

Would you like to help a research student in pursuing her project? Do you have an hour to spare?

Then Ariane, a research student at The Open University, would like to ask for your help with her research about the role of finance in everyday life.

The aim of the research is to find out what individuals like you think about the role of finance in your life and to explore your everyday activities including financial practices.

The interview will take place at your home or any location that is convenient for you. Everything that you tell Ariane will be in confidence. No personal information will be passed to anyone outside the research team. She will write a report of the study but no individual will be identifiable from the published results of the research.

If you do decide to take part in the interview, Ariane will give you a small report summarising the research findings of the study. The results will give you a chance to get a summary of how other households deal with finance and get tips on sources of financial advice.

For further queries and taking part in the research please contact Ariane at: or at +44 (0) 1908 659403
