AUSA, led by five elected Sabbatical Officers and a staff team of over 20 people, exists to represent and support the student community and to help students to expand their horizons, reach their full potential, and change the world around them.

Despite the challenges Aberdeen University are supportive of AUSA and their leadership very accessible. There are some great opportunities to create a modern students’ association that works in a more relevant way to better meet […]
