How do I join the Students’ Union?

Once you are fully enrolled as a new student, in order to become part of Your Students' Union, you need to share your data with us!

The University and the Students' Union are two separate organisations and therefore under data protection legislation and the agreement between both organisations you need to confirm that you are happy for the University to share your information with us. When students are unable to log into the website it is typically because you have not confirmed with the University that you are happy for this data to be shared.

  1. Log into the University's NOVA System
  2. Log into the Data Protection Seciton and select data sharing agreements
