Start your own Project

Can’t see something in the list below that you’d like to get involved in? Then start your own! If you’re thinking about ratifying a student group under YUSU, there are a few steps you’ll need to complete. Ratifying brings you a whole host of benefits, including:
- Access to financial aid
- A free spot at Freshers’ Fair,
- Advertising on on the YUSU website
- Dedicated staff support for your operational management.

Your application will be reviewed and voted on by Volunteering Committee. Once you have their approval, you’ll have to complete some documentation before you are formally ratified. Read through our Guide to Starting a New Project to get started, and complete the application form.
