The aim of the survey is to chart out the challenges students with a family have concerning child care, their child care needs and how they succeed in balancing their family and studies.

The survey is conducted and its answers are processed by the Student Union of the University of Helsinki (HYY), the National Union of University Students in Finland (SYL) and the Family Federation of Finland. Answers to the survey are anonymous. The results are used in advocacy work on improving the services of students with a family and on making balancing family and studies easier as well as in research conducted by the Family Federation of Finland.
