Who are we?

NUS Wales represents more than a quarter of a million students and apprentices in further and higher education in Wales. 


What's in the Student Manifesto?

Education for a Fairer Student Experience

Education for a Fairer Society

- makes recommendations that would create a more equitable Wales for all its citizens.


Education for a Fairer Economy

- makes recommendations that promote a sustainable economic recover from the Covid-19 recession.


Education for a Fairer Future

- makes recommendations that would create a Wales full of opportunities for future generations.
