These Are The Best Students’ Unions In The UK

Whether you’re always aware of it or not, Students’ Unions form a big part of the university experience.

They represent you and your university nationally, they plan Freshers’ Week and events, they facilitate the running of societies and clubs and they help with welfare support. So, it’s pretty important that they’re good at what they do.
