At regular intervals a group of UK Students’ Unions comes together to design, fund and commission research into students’ views and experience of university.
Previously Students’ Unions have looked at the student view of teaching excellence, and student perceptions of value for money. This time around a group has come together to learn more about a number of student living and lifestyle issues.
Every year a raft of research is released on crucial student issues relating to housing, costs and travel, but much of it is characterised by a commissioning organisation with an agenda and a pre-packed press release, which gathers low response rates. We wanted to know more about these issues; not to promote a new product, service or app, but to determine whether both national and institutional policy needs to change in these areas.
