Project: Longitudinal evaluation of university financial literacy courses
UWA and Macquarie University each run a one semester financial literacy program for university students. The UWA program is face-to-face; the Macquarie program is via video online.
This research will conduct a longitudinal evaluation of each program and compare the outcomes. This will assess who enrols in each course, and how effective each course is for those who do enrol. It also allows a comparison between the two delivery methods.
The research will look back at students who have completed the courses (going back to 2012) and compare their long-term outcomes with a control group. The research will also deliver updated before- and after- surveys to future students and track the long-term impact of the courses. The assessment covers knowledge, skills, attitudes, behaviour and financial wellbeing.
