Campaigns: Higher Education

 

Welcome to the online archive of our weekly briefing service for education officers and staff within students' unions. Education Information provides a short overview, normally no more than two-sides of A4, on an education issue or recent report that may impact on your institution or be referred to in university committees.

It has a suggested distribution list that we would ask you to circulate it to, this might include course reps or representatives on university committees on various topics as well as in some cases other sabbaticals and your staff.

If you have any particular issues that are coming up at a local level that you think colleagues across the country would find interesting please let us know. If you would like to be emailed each week with the latest Education Information, then please email education@nus.org.uk.

Education information is downloadable as a pdf file. If you can't open the file, please download and install a PDF reader such as Foxit.
