HOW ARE WE FUNDED?

How we afford to support students

The Students’ Association is funded through a portion of your Student Levy – a compulsory part of your university fees.

 

For more information about your Student Levy, watch this handy guide below.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
Even if you choose to opt out of UCSA membership, you still have to pay the full Student Levy. There is no financial advantage to not being a UCSA member.   

The Joint Operations Advisory Board (JOAB) advises the Vice-Chancellor on how the Levy would be best spent each year. The UCSA is funded only for the services it provides students – such as advocacy and welfare, student events, and the dental scheme. The remainder of the Levy is allocated to UC departments and other providers.
