welcome 2021

Regardless of where you are studying from, whether you are a new undergraduate or new postgraduate student, or returning for another year - we have a full program of online activity to welcome you to, and back to, University. From how to join a Club, Society or Sports team, how to get involved with our Environmental work, run in our Elections or have your student voice heard - we're still Your Students' Union, online or in-person. 

We would love to get back to face to face events as well as our online program, and be assured that as soon as it is safe to do so, and Scottish Government restrictions allow, we will. The safety of students and our staff is at the forefront of what we do and you can read more about what the University are doing to keep us all safe during the COVID 19 pandemic here.

Our latest update on returning to studies and campus can be read here. (Updated 7/01/2021)
