Who we are and what we do for you
If you’re a student at the University of Birmingham, then you’re automatically a member of the Guild of Students.
As a charity and the students’ union for more than 34,000 students, we’re here to help you develop skills outside of study, have fun, meet new people, represent you to the University and make sure you get the best from Birmingham!
What makes the Guild unique? Well, for starters, we are…
- Democratically run by a team of 7 elected students
- The home to 250+ student groups, societies and associations
- One of the biggest employers of students on campus, helping students to earn over £2.5m in wages in 2017/18
- A charity, overseen by a Board of Trustees
- Non-profit making. Instead, any surplus we make goes back in the pot to fund student activities
- Working closely with the University, to represent your views
- Here for YOU!
