The Survey

Your life, your future is a major longitudinal survey which is exploring the opportunities and support available to young people living in different places and their aspirations, attitudes and experiences as they move through and beyond their final years of compulsory education. This survey, which is following over 4,000 young people across England over three years, starting when they are aged 15-16, will help us understand how young people can be better supported to make meaningful choices about their future lives.

The survey is part of a larger study, the Young Lives, Young Futures project, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the UK’s largest organisation for funding research on economic and social issues. While the larger study is focused particularly on young people who don’t go to university, the Your Life Your Future survey is focused on young  people taking both university and non-university pathways.
