I will pay for the following article Investigating the Attitudes and Concepts of Student Life at the University of Hertfordshire. The work is to be 17 pages with three to five sources, with in-text citations and a reference page. The researcher used a qualitative approach (semi-structured interviews and a questionnaire) to collect useful information for the analysis. Respondents were classified based on age (below 22 years – younger, and 22 years and beyond – older) as well as using gender lines. Older and younger students were found to differ significantly in their concepts of university life (t = 2.25, p = 0.043). Equally, males and females differed significantly in their concepts of university life (t = 10.22, p = 0.004). Older and younger students did not differ significantly in terms of how positively or negatively they view university life. Similarly, there were no significant differences in terms of how positively or negatively students of the opposite gender viewed university life. More males than the females (87.5% against 50.0%) believed that they had a positive attitude towards university life. The percentage (75%) of students above 21 years of age who believed they had a positive attitude towards university life was also higher than that of those below 22 years (62.5%).
This research uses qualitative methods of data collection to investigate the attitudes and concepts of student life at the University of Hertfordshire. .
In order to carry out a successful research study, Kelly, Lesh, and Mason (2002) underscored the need to choose a suitable research methodology – one that is guided by the best practices in the field of research. For this reason, it is necessary that the researcher employs a suitable research design. A research design is a formulation of research, right from the exploratory stages to the more advanced stages such as experimentation, data collection, data analysis, and even data presentation (Creswell, 2003). Creswell noted that in order for a researcher to produce consistent results, it is paramount that they review literature lent through similar research questions in order to understand the general procedures involved in the research.
