NUS Scotland

Liam McCabe: NUS Scotland President

NUS Scotland is recognised by the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Government as the key voice of students in Scotland.

We work with trade unions, campaigning and voluntary organisations to influence the Scottish Government and have a track record of winning for students.

Campaigning together with students and students’ associations across the country we have had some massive wins in recent years which have made a real difference to students throughout Scotland.

NUS Wales

Rob Simkins: NUS Wales President

The National Union of Students (NUS) Wales is a confederation of students’ unions representing more than half a million students in the nation.

We promote, defend and extend the rights of students, paying close attention to the decisions of our devolved Welsh Government.

We also work to develop and champion our 24 member students’ unions in higher and further education.

In the past three years we have seen our membership grow with our commitment to helping students in further education have a stronger voice.

Nearly every college in Wales is a member of the student movement. This matches our historically strong commitment to students in higher education from our birth on the grounds of Aberystwyth University in the autumn of 1973.

Currently, NUS Wales is exploring how Wales’ education system for people age 16 and older can improve through our Imagine Education project. We also are in the early stages of researching part-time students in Wales.

Robert Murtagh: NUS-USI President

NUS-USI was established in 1972 under a unique arrangement where both the British and Irish national student unions, National Union of Students (NUS) and Union of Students in Ireland (USI) respectively, jointly organised in Northern Ireland to promote student unity across the sectarian divide.

NUS-USI Student Movement represents the interests of over 200,000 students in Northern Ireland and campaigns on their behalf in many different fields such as student hardship, health, prejudice and accommodation.

We also provide an infrastructure that helps individual students' unions in the north of Ireland to develop their own work through our research, training and development functions.
