We have launched a major membership-wide research project, looking at the experiences of students in schools, colleges and universities in England, from undergraduate up to postgraduate research. We want to know what the experience is of support, how it effects participation, performance and well-being.
We will present an alternative to the current piecemeal set of support systems, and we need your help to do it, to let us know what matters and help us to shape the future of student support.
Find out more about who sits on The Student Financial Support Commission and what they do.
We have released a survey which will ask you questions about how you fund your living costs whilst studying and what you think of the support you receive.
So, if you are studying for your degree, masters, PHD, If you are an apprentice, or on any course at a college or other learning provider in England, then we want to hear from you about what you think works well - and what might need changing - about how you are supported.
To thank you for your time we will enter you into a draw to win a cash prize of £500 or one of ten £50 cash prizes.
The survey should take around 20 minutes to complete and can be completed confidentially.
Take part in the survey today!
Don't forget to share this survey with your members by sending around this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/studentfinance or direct them to www.nus.org.uk/thepoundinyourpocket
The closing date is 12 February.
We have also provided information for International Overseas Students and The Nations.
