Why affiliate?

Affiliating to the GU forms an important political link between the MCR and the GU. Each affiliated MCR has a vote at GU Council, and plays a key role in forming GU policy and holding the GU's officers to account. In this way, MCRs can feed the voice of their students up to University level, as the GU officers act as the recognised graduate representatives within the central University. The GU President, and GU-CUSU Welfare & Rights Officer, attend a significant number of central committees to input the views and needs of students; representation is very much at the core of the GU's misison.

Does it cost anything to affiliate?

As of Michaelmas 2018 affiliating to the GU is free.
