Students’ Union


Students’ Unions are the backbone of the National Union of Students (NUS). They provide a broad range of services from welfare advice and information to student community action projects. The purpose of NUS is to fight barriers to education by empowering students to shape a quality learning experience.

More information can be found on the National Union of Students from their website or by visiting the Student Liaison Officers office within the learning gateway at Weymouth College.
