What is a Students' Union?

Every University around the country has a Students' Union there to represent the academic interests of their students.

Who runs it?

You.

Every year you elect 4 students, just like you, through the annual Leadership Race to lead the Students' Union. They deliver the game-changers, influencing your University experience on a daily basis and in the longer term too.

The Officers are supported by a team of core staff, student staff members and volunteers working hard in our venues and shops, supporting students through our advice centre and helping you to get involved and make the most of your time at Staffs.

Four students also volunteer as Student Trustees on our Trustee Board during their studies, these meetings give them opportunity to provide student-focused feedback at meetings to ensure you remain the key focus in our goals as we progress forwards.

As a student at Staffordshire Univeristy, you're already automatically a member from the moment you enrol.
