NSS results are in

In General

The latest National Student Survey (NSS) released today, shows that satisfaction with the Union has improved from 69% to 72%.

While we are pleased with this improvement, we recognise this is just a starting point and a lot of work still needs to be done to put us where we want to be as one of the top five unions in the country.
