National Union of Students (NUS) Wales is a confederation of students' unions representing more than 320,000 students in the nation. We are an integral, but autonomous, part of the National Union of Students UK - meaning we work together to represent students across the entire country, while setting our own policy and direction.
Mission: NUS Wales exists to promote, defend and extend the rights of students and develop and champion strong students' unions.
Vision: NUS Wales is a pioneering, innovative and powerful campaigning organisation: the national voice of students. We will fight barriers to education; empower students to shape both a quality learning experience and the world around them; as well as supporting influential, democratic and well-resourced students' unions.
As well as campaigning on behalf of our members, NUS Wales provides a range of training to students’ unions including training for full-time offices, part-time officers and staff. We provide support to students’ unions to ensure they are able to engage positively with the latest policy developments that affect them.
Values and Beliefs: The core values of NUS Wales are democracy, equality and collectivism. We believe that student organisations should be student-led and that education is a benefit to the individual and to society.
