The survey questions were mainly constructed according to the Likert Scale but it also contained open questions to ensure both quantitative and qualitative data. To make the material comprehensible we applied Gender Theory in our analysis. The results showed a spread of the students’ standpoints in several statements and that conceptions are circulating the university both from students and from lecturers. We noticed a larger uncertainty among the students in the questions regarding Trans issues than gender and homosexuality. Despite this it seems that the majority of our respondents possess an awareness of how these conceptions may influence social work practice. (Less)
