FutureTrack is a UK-wide survey following students for six years from the time they fill in their UCAS applications through to their first two years of work or postgraduate study. The project, led by Professor Kate Purcell from Warwick University, requires participants to fill in two online questionnaires a year to help investigate the factors that influence students' decision making at various stages of their academic careers.

Joseph entered into a prize draw by participating in the Futuretrack2006 survey when he applied through UCAS, one of 125,000 who took part. In all, sixty people have won prizes - twenty winning £1000 and forty winning £500.
