Education Act 1994

The 1994 Education Act (Section 22) requires University Court to ensure that the Edinburgh University Students’ Association (EUSA) operates in a fair and democratic manner and is accountable for its finances.

The Code sets out how the University will carry out its responsibilities under the Act, and cover areas such as:

  • The right of students to opt out of membership
  • EUSA's democratic processes
  • EUSA's financial and resource allocation mechanisms
  • Affiliations by EUSA to external organisations and
  • The implications of Charity Law on the activities that EUSA can undertake.

This Code of Practice is brought to the attention of students annually by publication on the Students’ Association and the University website.
