WORCESTER Students’ Union has been ranked among the top 10 unions at mainstream universities across the UK in an independent survey.
Almost two thirds of students – 65 per cent – from the University of Worcester, who responded to the National Student Survey, said they felt the Students’ Union ‘effectively represents students’ academic interests’.
Worcester’s rating was well above the 53 per cent national average.
Liam Lees, president of Worcester Students’ Union, said: “Our team of staff and elected student officers works incredibly hard and has continued to do so throughout the pandemic – which hasn’t been easy for anyone – to do our utmost to meet the needs of our diverse student body.
“This includes providing advice and guidance on all aspects of University life, welfare support, and a range of activities to keep them engaged and feeling a sense of community, which has been so important this last year.
The Students’ Union and University have worked closely throughout the pandemic to ensure students at Worcester received a first-class experience, academically, socially and in supporting their mental health and wellbeing.
Professor David Green CBE DL, Vice Chancellor and Chief Executive, said: “The Students’ Union elected officers and entire team behind them have done an outstanding job in representing students.
“In partnership with the University, the Worcester Students’ Union has worked purposefully and consistently to ensure students at Worcester have access to the support needed to navigate these very difficult and uniquely challenging times.”
