The NUS have initiated a large research project which includes a national qualitative survey, a literature review and analysis of government spending, and qualitative research projects commissioned from the students’ union membership. Findings from this project will be used to develop alternative proposals to provide financial support to English-domiciled students in further and higher education.
The survey aims to look at students’ experiences of financial support including: accessing support, timing of payments, discretionary vs statutory support systems, the impacts of hidden costs, transport, accommodation, private loans and credit. The NUS wants to hear from you about what you think works well – and what might need changing – about how you are supported.
The survey closes on the 12 February and respondents will be entered into a prize draw to win £500 or one of ten £50 prizes.For more information, go to the Pound in Your Pocket resource on NUS Connect. The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete and can be completed confidentially. If you have any questions about this survey or indeed the wider research activity, please contact Alan Roberts, NUS Policy Officer on firstname.lastname@example.org
I found this on Vitae — I’m studying in Wales so I can’t take it, but I think you should if you are eligible. Let’s have our voices heard and give those coming up behind us a better chance of making it without being in debt forever…
