Religious students more 'moral' than atheists or agnostics – study

Students who profess a religious faith are more "moral" than those who are atheist or have no religion, according to new research.

The study, published by Birmingham's University's Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues, found that religion is correlated with character building.

The study of 10,200 students and 250 teachers from 68 UK schools took place between February 2013 and June 2014 and is the largest of its kind. Researchers used surveys, moral dilemma tests and interviews.

The religious students scored higher on the moral dilemma tests and within the religious group, those who practised their religion scored more highly than those who did not. Girls also scored higher than boys when faced with moral dilemmas.
