Dissertation research on English Channel swimmers

edited March 2013 in General Discussion
From an e-mail from the Channel Group:

Hello
I am studying psychology at University and I have chosen to do my dissertation on the motivations of English Channel swimmers. I decided on this topic as Channel swimming interests me, I have swum round Jersey myself and done a English Channel relay, one day I would also like to swim the channel.
I am looking for people who are training to swim the English channel, have attempted to swim the English Channel or have successfully completed a channel swim.
If you would be willing to help me out by filling in the questionnaire, it would be greatly appreciated. It won't take you long and you would be doing me a big favour.
This is the link to the questionnaire:

If you would like any more information please feel free to email me off the group.
(use the e-mail in the questionnaire. Niek)


Thank you in advance

  • Wow, they give out PhD's for doing surveys of marathon swimmers? Can I have one too? I can provide p–values and everything!

    A honorary Professorship and a chair in o.w.s. maybe for you @evmo.
    Does Dover have an Uni? :)

  • It's for an undergraduate degree in Psychology, not a PhD - a small piece of work to show independent research skills. She's a really great young woman from Jersey - help her out if you can.
  • Sorry, I usually associate the word "dissertation" with a PhD. Either way, I'm happy to help, and hope she gets some great data!
  • I was just about to change @evmo's id to @Dr.Evmo.
