Shaping Scotland’s Future

Thursday 25 February 2016 NUS Scotland

Scottish parliamentary elections take place on Thursday 5 May. Help us make students' voices heard.

NUS Scotland has launched a dedicated election campaign site ahead of this year’s crucial parliamentary elections.

Shaping Scotland’s Future has all the information you need on what NUS Scotland is doing in the run-up to Thursday 5 May.

We are calling for:

  • A right to improved bursary support for FE students
  • Year-round support for HE students, with increased grant support and reduced debt
  • Better support for students with mental ill health

We ran a successful voter registration drive during the first week of February (although it’s not too late to register to vote!) and we will be holding a parliamentary reception on Tuesday 8 March.

There will be a National Demonstration on Wednesday 23 March ahead of the voter registration deadline on Monday 18 April.

More information on all of these events can be found here.

There are over 500,000 students in Scotland (over 10 per cent of voters) and it’s vital that students’ voices are properly represented. So get involved and spread the word – together we can shape Scotland’s future.
