In an attempt to improve the trust worthiness of the research paper and prevent biases from occurring, various procedures were carried out by the investigators in line with previous literature in the field of qualitative research (Anney 2014). Simultaneous evaluation of the data meant that the concepts developed could be investigated for a complete understanding of phenomena through parallel interviews. All investigators have used the same interview structures and the same questions were employed, and they have made sure to thorough discuss the emergent concepts and not to have any blind spots regarding any elements in the findings. Multiple quotations were used to express the research outcomes, which have offered the participants in this study a genuine voice. In addition, experts in the field of qualitative research have been consulted, where control procedure were used to double check the results. The analysis was carried out independently, and in addition to peer-checking the researchers have also used member-checking to ensure credibility and validation, where after finalizing the themes they were redirected to the participants for verification (Speziale et al. 2011). Moreover, external member-checking was also used, in order to ensure that the results are generalizable, where students having the same characteristics as those who took part in the study were asked to recognize the comparability between the emergent themes and their own experience.
