NSA stands for Napier Students' Association. It is your students' union, and all Napier students, part time or full time, are members of it. Some of you will use our services regularly throughout your time at Napier, others will use us occasionally and some will do so only in times of crisis. However you decide to use our services or get involved in what we do, is up to you. We are here for you and if you have any ideas on how we might improve the services we offer, we want to hear your views.
There are 3 main benefits of NSA membership:
What your Students' Association does on your behalf...
NSA does a range of things to support students, but representation is our core business. Representation is aimed at making Napier closer to its students, delivering the kind of degrees, and the teaching, learning and support facilities that students want and need to make them effective students and successful graduates. Its about raising the quality of the whole student experience as well as problem-solving when things go wrong.
By representation we mean: of Napier students, by Napier students and for Napier students. We also mean: listening to them, formulating policy on their behalf, and taking it to the place where we can present the students case and win improvements whether that is at classroom or faculty level, or senior level within Napier, or externally, through the Scottish or UK Parliament or the broader community.
Other organisations and people can support and advise you as students, but Napier Students' Association is unique in that the main reason for its existence is to represent the interests of Napier students directly. Its your voice, make sure you use it and that it truly represents you.
