We're at a cross roads when it comes to student support in Scotland. For years NUS Scotland has fought hard to ensure that students across Scotland have enough money to live off. But while we have achieved some really significant wins for students, we need to do so much more to make the student funding the best, and fairest, it can be.
That’s why NUS Scotland has launched The Student Poverty Project. This is a major survey of students about their views of the student support system and how we can make it better.
The Student Poverty Project survey is all about finding out first hand from you where the cracks in the system are, and what we can do to fix them. Your responses will ensure that politicians sit up and listen, and that we are able to secure real, and positive change, for years to come, as we look ahead to the Scottish Parliament elections in 2011.
Not only do we want to get thousands of students sharing their views, but we want to reward you for doing so! So to thank everyone who takes part in the survey, they’ll be in with a chance of winning one of five fantastic £100 cash prizes!
The Scottish elections are our opportunity to reclaim the political agenda for students and young people, and this survey is one vital way to achieve that, ensuring we have the evidence based to really push for our manifesto demands, and force politicians to listen to us.
We need to get as many students as we can completing it, and really need your help to do that.
