The President is the elected leader of students in Wales’ colleges and universities. The role tends to absorb most of the public facing duties – acting as the voice and face of students studying in our nation.
Between the President and Deputy President, the roles share a portfolio of work. This work is outlined annually in the Scheme of Work – an amalgamation of the policies passed at Conference, the manifestos of the full-time officers, the current issues of the day and the resource that NUS Wales has available to make it all happen.
Primary areas of work include further and higher education, as these are central to the work of representing students. Students don’t live their lives in colleges and universities. Other areas of work include housing, mental health and other welfare related issues. If something effects the lives of students, NUS Wales can play a role in representing them. For more information, please see the NUS Wales Conference webpage.
