Opportunities for Unions Membership of Northern Services is open to any Student Union, SRC or similar body in any University, Polytechnic or College of Further or Higher Education within the United Kingdom. There are currently five members including, University of St Andrews Students' Association, Dundee University Students' Association, and the student bodies at Glasgow University.
Individual Unions place orders separately and are invoiced separately, but are able to take advantage of the nationally negotiated prices obtained by Northern Services.
Northern Services is a fully democratic body in which student officers cast votes: these votes are allocated to each member organisation in direct relation to that institution's purchasing power.
