Week 12: Your Students' Union
Students’ Union UCL is here to represent the needs of all UCL students at a college, local and national level.

To find out more about the Union, including how to join a club or society, who this year's sabbatical officers will be and what they do, why you should care about representation and (most importantly!) details about this year's Welcome Fair, check back here this week!
