Student unions form from university college students to obtain a bachelor’s degree, and those who pay union fees. Foreign students who pay union fees have the right to practice aspects of the union’s activities without having the right to vote or be nominated.
Student unions aim to achieve the following:
- Develop spiritual and moral values among students and provide them with the opportunity to express their opinions.
- Spreading university spirit among students and strengthening the links between them and the faculty.
- Discovering students’ talents, abilities and skills, and encouraging them.
- Spreading and encouraging the formation of families and student cooperative societies and supporting their activities.
