What is Student Council?

Student Council is NUSU’s highest student representative body that gives you and all the students of Newcastle University a say on what your Students’ Union should be focusing on and how it’s run. By coming to Council, you can be involved in deciding the work NUSU does, such as major issues we raise to the University, the campaigns we run or the events we support!
