We are delighted that students at the University of Bristol have voted to remain affiliated with their national union.
In a membership referendum held from 17 to 20 October, 2,409 students voted to remain a part of NUS and 1,186 voted to leave.
Malia Bouattia, NUS president, said:
“It’s great news that students at the University of Bristol have recognised the importance of a collective voice and voted for their students’ union to remain affiliated with NUS. Students are facing incredibly challenging times, with a cost of living crisis, rising tuition fees and education reforms, but NUS will keep fighting for a better future.”
Richard Brooks, NUS vice president (union development), said:
“I’m thrilled the University of Bristol Students’ Union will remain a part of NUS. I’d like to thank everyone who worked really hard on the ground to make sure the benefits of NUS were clear to students. We are changing and I look forward to working with Bristol students to make NUS the best national union it can be.”
