The Students’ Union is keen to gain a greater understanding of who our postgraduate students are and what they really want of their SU. A dedicated Research & Insight Executive will conduct initial research over July to September 2017. Recognising the diversity of Warwick’s PG population is key to this research.
There are many existing data sources which are potentially relevant. Our researcher, Samantha Jones, will collate these and review the most useful datasets. Samantha will also carry out original research with key stakeholders – most importantly, PGs, but also officers and staff from the SU and University.
Engagement with PGs is likely to be via focus groups in early September 2017. We want these groups to be representative, so please watch out for recruitment notices later this summer.
This is the first stage of a larger project - we also expect the initial research to identify longer term research activities.
If you would like further information about the research, want to feed in your views or are interested in participating in PG focus groups, please contact Samantha on ext. 72803 or Samantha.Jones@warwicksu.com.
