Reforms to overhaul the structure of the National Union of Students have been given final approval.

The changes will see the NUS Group split into two individual bodies from July 2020: one will be responsible for students’ union development and the other for supporting a national student voice. The restructure comes after the NUS reported a £3-million deficit and announced cutbacks and changes to tackle its financial troubles.

A national scrutiny council will be set up to oversee student officers and ensure the NUS board has corporate expertise from people not involved in the student movement. The proposals were first voted through at the NUS conference in Glasgow but they have now passed the last hurdle.
