Juggling study and being a parent, whilst extremely rewarding, can also be a real struggle. NUS is working to make a fairer system for all student parents.

As part of its work in this area, NUS has produced a report  – the first of its kind in the UK to look in detail at the experience of student parents in both FE and HE.

This report, 'Meet the Parents', is now available for download. The report - launched in Parliament - is comprised of detailed interviews, focus groups and a survey of more than 2,000 student parents, and has served as the launching pad for our student parents campaign. Read more about the report here.
