Each week we bring you a summary of the best tweets and photos from the world of students' unions as well as stories about NUS in the press.
What happened on NUS Connect this week?
This week, the Government announced its plans to introduce a postgraduate loans scheme for students under 30 - a huge step in the right direction and certinly a major campaign win for NUS and students' unions. Other items of interest making waves on Connect this week included our interview with freelance journalist Reni Eddo-Lodge which focussed on intersectionality, and our collaboration with photographer Darren Johnson which dovetailed with this week's Takeover Thursday on the police's stop and search powers,
We were also joined in the Hot Seat by Jenny Greenfield, Chief Executive at Students' Union University of Greenwich who exlained how her union is working in tandem with the university more than ever before to deliver for their students.
