“ The Exec’s work on the cost of living has provided us with a greater understanding of the actual cost of studying, accommodation, catering and participation in student activities, giving us the fuel we need to campaign for a better deal for students, regardless of background and circumstances.”

We had a deficit of £23,537 this year as we invested some of our reserves into maintaining activity during the Union Upgrade.

“The strength and effectiveness of the Partnership with the University and students

created some great improvements to the student experience including a new web-based attendance monitoring system and alternative study space to accompany the opening of the new Edward Boyle. We’ve also educated and organised students to mobilise ahead of the NUS’s demonstration against the changes in HE.”

Melissa Owusu, Education Officer, 2015-17
