Committed student association

that will coordinate the PIR assessment and survey data collection in your school

Casual Business Meeting

Supportive business school

that registers and signs the agreement to pay the participation fee to the PIR Association

What happens next?

After registration and payment, we will open the survey portal on 1st October 2021 for students to access. We will close the survey on 1st February 2022. Student associations are free to decide within this period when the time is right for a focused campaign on campus. The PIR team will provide support and training to use the survey portal.
