The Kunsill Studenti Universitarji (University Students’ Council) is the oldest national student union in Europe.
Albeit the fact that years have passed by since the day when KSU was founded in 1901, KSU’s aims remain unaltered. Your contribution as a University student is undeniably fundamental for the betterment of the University and society in general. KSU is founded on the ideology that life at the University of Malta is much more than simply academia but is the ideal forum where students can engage in active participation. Students should be given the opportunity to express their ideas regarding pertinent issues.
KSU finds its roots in a set of fundamental
objectives on which the organisation was
To give a voice and empower students in order to encourage them to both seek opportunities whereby they are able to contribute towards society, whilst also providing them with such opportunities.

When reasonably practicable and possible, to coordinate its activities with those of other organisations without sacrificing its autonomy.
