For Good | National Union of Students

We partner talented students with forward thinking organisations to collaborate on research, dissertations, placements and practical projects to progress economic, social and environmental sustainability.

NUS For Good supports students to turn their education into a force for good by making a positive difference in the organisations they are partnered with across the UK. Opportunities include dissertation or thesis research, bespoke projects and work placements.

Through the partnerships we facilitate, students gain the opportunity to apply their academic learning to a real-world setting whilst making a meaningful impact to the organisations they are partnered with. Our For Good platform is open to all tertiary education students studying in the UK regardless of their course or level of study.
