National Union of Students
NUS is one of the largest student organisations in the world and represents the interests of around five million students in further and higher education throughout the United Kingdom.
It is a voluntary membership organisation comprising of over 750 local student representative organisations in colleges and universities throughout the United Kingdom. Every one of these is known as a constituent member (CM) and pays an annual subscription fee to NUS. The funds raised from affiliation fees are used to fund the campaigns and activities of the National Union, including the running of all of the democratic structures in which the union is entitled to take part.
When you pick up your University ID card, you’ll notice that it has the NUS logo on it. This is because your ID card also doubles as your NUS democracy card, allowing you to vote in NUS & Students’ Union elections. It is also shows that you’re entitled to use the Union building and services.
