Worcester Students' Union is run by students, but what does that really mean? Well, it’s pretty simple; everything we do at the Union is democratic. From big events such as elections, down to individual student campaigns, representing students in every aspect of what we do.
In this section of the website you can find all the information on how we represent you, how you can make your voice heard and how we hold the university to account.
Your Officers and Elections
The Students’ Union is a democratic organisation run by students for students. Cross-campus elections are held every academic year so the students can choose their officers/representatives for the coming academic year. These elected work at all levels of the University to enhance your student experience and represent you, the students. Here at Worcester Students' Union, we currently have 3 full time officers and 9 part time officers.
The Union is run for students by students. It is governed and led by its student members through the Student Council. The Student Council provides democratic leadership and oversight of the Union.
Student Academic Representation
The Students' Union is here to make sure that you can make the most out of your degree and Student Academic Represtatives or as we like to call them StARs are one of the key ways we do this. Each course has its own set of StARs who volunteer their time to champion the needs of the students on their respective courses.
Throughout the year, we’ll be leading on dozens of campaigns to ensure that your university experience is the best it can be. So if you would like to get stuck in and help us campaign, then be sure to reach out to us!
SU Out and About
Although we have our lovely building on St John's Campus we also try to make sure that we are accesible where you are studying. SU Out and About is a chance for SU staff and officers to talk with students about what events or activities the SU is involved with but also a key chance for you to feedback to us and for us to find out what issues are curently effecting students.
