Have Your Say……..

The Scottish Government are reviewing the support available to students over the summer months and are offering you the chance to take part in a series of online workshops to have your say. The aim is for the Government to have a better understanding of student experiences and in turn improve the support available.

They’re looking for Further Education (NC/NQ/Access/Level 6) and Higher Education (HNC/HND/Degree/PG) who would be interested in providing an insight into their financial situation and personal circumstances over the summer months. In particularly students who:

  • are in receipt of the Care Experienced Bursary
  • are estranged from their family
  • have childcare responsibilities (student parents and lone parents)
  • have caring responsibilities
  • have applied for support from discretionary funds and received support
  • have applied for support from discretionary funds and did not receive support

You can find further details of the workshops and register to take part via this link: https://www.studentinformation.gov.scot/students/student-engagement-workshops
