Bristol SU have achieved their Quality Students' Union Award, after assessment earlier this year.
This is a new quality mark that has been developed by the NUS (National Union of Students) to assure the quality, standards and overall effectiveness of students’ unions.
Bristol SU joins 19 other unions from around the country who have achieved a Quality SU Award.
Simon Blake, Chief Executive of the NUS said:
"Congratulations to Bristol SU on achieving their QSU award. Bristol SU was particularly noted for excellent practice in Representation and Campaigning, such as their work on the BME Attainment Gap which was highlighted by staff, officers and senior University stakeholders."
"The Union were also commended for elements of excellent practice in Review and Evaluation; particularly the work on students’ mental health, housing, the BME Attainment Gap and the ‘Bristol SU Annual Survey’ which were all of a very high standard and the results of which were driving policy change within the Union and University."
This news follows a rise of 27 places on this year’s Times Higher Education Student Satisfaction survey. Since 2010-11 Bristol SU has risen by 39 places and is currently the second fastest improving students’ union in the country. Over three quarters of Bristol Students rated their SU as good or better.
We're also pleased to announce that Helen, Chloe and Alice (part of Bristol SU Policy and Research Team), have been short-listed for the University Award for Enhancing the Student Learning Experience, as part of the 2018 Bristol Teaching Awards.
