Students' Unions

The National Union of Students and NCVO Third Sector Foresight worked together between April 2009 and October 2009 to research the drivers that are to research the drivers of change most relevant to Students' Unions locally and NUS nationally. Outcomes of this work include the detailed specialist sector drivers listed below.

As part of this work, we also looked at how general drivers will impact on Students' Unions. Take a look at the drivers listed under 'Other relevant drivers' to see our comments.

You can make notes on drivers and collect the most relevant ones by saving them to your profile.
