Methodology

This is an exploratory research with the introduction of the peripheral diagnostic element. A qualitative method is used to gain necessary information with a number of required details.

A planned number of the structured interviews with parents/students (graduates of the Cultural Studies, Philology and Sociology) is 30. this technique will allow standardizing the questions, and meantime leaves a space for the longer answers.

Simple Random Sampling followed by the Non-Probability (Purposive) Sampling are the selection techniques used in the research in order to receive the diversity of the respondents according to the following characteristics:

●      sex (with a probable greater part of the mother/students)

●      age (19-35 years old)

  • number and age of the children (having at least one 0-12 years old child is required; children’s age diversity will help to study various challenges in different socio-demographic situations)
  • a faculty of the studies
  • mode of the studies
  • year of the studies (first-year students vs last-year students)
  • place of residence (citizens of Warsaw and commuters).

The collected empirical data will be encoded with a help of open and selective coding methods, that enable thematic and comparing analysis both individually and collectively.
