SNUS is a membership based organization which seeks to unite all students in institutions of higher learning in Swaziland for purposes of creating a strong, united and vibrant student movement geared to confront the socio economic and political challenges of the country. On top of the organization’s agenda is to advocate for an education policy that will be informed by the socio economic demands faced by the country and the democratization of our society.

The fundamental reasons for the formation of this wonderful and progressive organization can be summarized as follows;

· To mobilize, unite, protect and the interest of students of Swaziland and promote the fundamental rights of students including the right to academic freedom, right to accessible, affordable, quality and relevant education.

· To cater for all round empowerment and development of students and their full involvement in community development and as well as to fight against poverty, unemployment, victimization, malpractices, marginalization, oppression, suppression and HIV and AIDS.

· To promote international solidarity and advance peace, justice and democracy throughout the world.

SNUS was formed is 1986 and was very much active in the students struggles and in the campaign for democracy and respect of human rights. Due to the hostile political environment in the country during the mid 1990’s,

SNUS become less active. This was due to the fact that a lot of its members were forced to exile in South Africa and other countries after organizing and participating in one of the longest anti-government protest in the country. With the deepening education crisis, privatization of education, increasing victimization of students and a lack of a strong and unified voice for the students in the country, students decided to revive the organization in December 2006.
