Learn more about joining Team AfSU.

We are a group of students from a diverse range of educational backgrounds. We are all on our own desired career path, but all share one goal, which is to provide support and give back to our community with the knowledge and expertise we have developed from our own experiences in education. Our team consists of students at different stages of our own educational pathways. We have members who have taken the routes shown below.


We have students studying many different courses at a variety of universities across the UK, including those in the Russell Group.

Sixth Form and College

Students studying A-Level, BTEC, or Access to Higher Education courses who are planning to study at further educational institutions in the future.

Gap Year

Students who have experienced or are currently taking a gap year out of education and have the expertise about how to use it to your advantage.

Degree Apprenticeship

An alternative route to University: studying and earning money at the same time, which tests your time-management skills.
