Every student enrolled at the University of Derby, and Buxton & Leek College, is automatically a member of the Students' Union. Whether you're actively involved or not, we aim to make your student experience a better one.
Always remember that the Students' Union is not part of the University; it is this independence that is key to our role. We are both student led and student focused and are passionate about ensuring that your time at university is as enjoyable as possible.
The organisation is led each year by a group of officer trustees, who are voted in by their peers enrolled at the University of Derby. This team is supported by a team of full-time employed staff and also a team of Part-Time Officers (elected volunteers).
The University of Derby Students' Union exists to represent students' voices within the University and also the wider community – both locally and, via NUS, nationally.
