About KSU

Kunsill Studenti Universitarji is the oldest national student union in Europe and currently represents approximately thirteen thousand students at the University of Malta and Junior College. KSU was founded by Chief Justice Sir Arturo Mercieca in 1901, as the Comitato Permanente Universitario. Throughout the year, the students’ union takes on a very proactive approach towards current affairs, national and international issues. The organisation’s aim remains unaltered through the years: to foster and enhance the important contribution that every student can lend to our University and Maltese society.

KSU gives students the opportunity not only to attend, but also to form an integral part of their University. KSU’s Executive Committee is pushing forth the renewed emphasis that University is not simply an academic domain where one specialises within a particular field or profession, but a forum for exchange of experiences between students as well as one of the ultimate steps which complete the student formation process. Although in itself KSU is a dynamic organisation and therefore is open for change and debate, like other organisations, it finds its roots in a set of fundamental objectives on which it was founded.
