CUSU Annual Survey

CUSU Annual Survey

The CUSU team is delighted to present the first CUSU Annual Survey! The students’ union understands that the views of its membership are vital to us staying relevant to the issues of our students and that’s why we want you to complete this survey.
We hope to expand on this survey in future years, however the survey will provide us with an annual gauge on student opinion about the union and we aim to use the data to constantly improve what we’re doing. The more people who fill in the survey, the better we can provide for you now and into the future. Thanks in advance for completing the survey!
