Mapping postgraduate representation:
NUS is conducting a survey of unions to find out how postgraduates are represented. This is part of a longer postgraduate engagement project that will help us to develop useful resources to support unions in engaging postgraduate students.
The survey can be viewed at http://www.officeronline.co.uk/postgraduate/articles/276797.aspx
