This is not to say that you need to make a decision on what societies you want to join immediatelty, each society will be attending out start-of-term Clubs & Societies Fair (which this year, will be operating both in-person at the Students' Union, as well virtually). Our next Fair will be coming to you between the 19th-21st September (more information to come). Come along, meet the committees, and get involved in any of their taster sessions.

What is the Bursary?

NUSU is committed to ensuring students can take full advantage of their time at university. We recognise that financial obstacles can arise which prevents students from accessing the activities we offer. The Participation Bursary aims to remove these barriers to participation by helping cover some of the costs of getting involved. Students can receive up to £280 per academic year. These amounts may change at the discretion of the Student Union and the information on this page will be updated accordingly.

At NUSU we aim to create an atmosphere in which all people feel valued, respected and have equal access. We’re excited to launch the 'Earn Your Stars' initiative to champion and recognise how inclusive our societies are! Every society can be awarded a bronze, silver, or gold level inclusivity badge which will feature on their society profiles.
