Resources

Below are a range of resources from NUS, other students' unions and the wider divestment movement to help you drive your campaign.

Our reports and research

We submitted freedom of information requests to all universities and colleges in the UK, as well as surveying staff and students across the country.

We used our findings to produce two reports - one on the state of investments across our education sector, and one on attitudes towards fossil fuels, renewables and investments.
