Inside NUS, there are five policy zones covering broad areas of issues affecting students:
The wellbeing of students in their institutions, their homes and their families.
Further Education Zone
Issues relating to the educational experience of learners in the further education and skills sector.
Issues that affect the study and development of students in higher education.
Supporting students’ unions to engage and develop their members through activities and services.
Society and Citizenship
The issues that affect students in wider society, the world and student engagement with them.
The role of each zone is to lead a portfolio of work, enable in-depth and wide ranging research and discussion on issues important to students, and deliver campaigns and work programmes relevant to that area.
Each Zone is led by a Vice President elected at the NUS National Conference and a committee elected at the zone conference held in late October.
