Students' Union and sustainability

Autmnal student

Our students are becoming more and more concerned for the environment and how they can become future leaders in sustainability.

A study by the Higher Education Academy (HEA) and the National Union of Students (NUS) found that 80% of students believe that sustainable development should be actively promoted and incorporated by UK universities – as it is at ARU, with Education for Sustainability embedded in the curriculum.

Our Students' Union is focused on transforming students’ voices into positive change. It has taken part In the Green Impact awards since 2007, and was proud to achieve the Gold Standard in 2015-16.
