If you really are what you claim, you should give more details to make 
that plausible: university, college/dept, course of study, and post from 
a university account, not an address at one of the current favorite 
sites for con artists.

If you want the survey emailed to you, you should include it. If it is 
hosted on a legitimate survey site, you should give a direct link.

Careful people do not open anonymous links from stangers. That file 
could literally be anything, including a malware injection page.

Even if you mean that for yourself, you cannot guarantee any of that. 
For all you know, bit.ly records the ip address of each click.
