National events

These national events and programmes are run by UJS for students from all universities, no matter what J-Soc you belong to, and no matter how active you are in your local J-Soc. We also have a travel fund to assist with helping you get to many of these events, so don’t hesitate to be in touch if you would like to know more about this.
