Welcome to Quality Students' Unions

Quality Students’ Unions has been developed by NUS to assure the quality, standards and overall effectiveness of students’ unions. This quality mark is a single management tool that interlocks with, and complements, relevant standards and codes that already exist within the student movement.

To meet the minimum standards and be considered an accredited students’ union, a union will need to be compliant with both its statutory obligations and accepted best practice.

Quality Students’ Unions measures the performance of students’ unions in relation to the following three core areas, detailed below:

This online hub is designed to be a one-stop shop for all information about Quality Students’ Unions. Unions can login and begin participating online.

Unions can register and then begin participating online. Please note there is one registration per union – which can then be shared amongst colleagues who are authorised to complete the online self-assessment.

Other stakeholders can access information about the scheme and will also be able to view information regarding students’ unions that have achieved a Quality Students’ Union award.
