Your Voice

Run by students, for students – what difference will you make?

What is Student Council?

Student Council provides any student with the opportunity to try to influence the policy, priorities and activities of the Students’ Union.  It is made up of up to 28 students, including the full time and part time elected officers and additional elected Student Councillors representing a range of student groups and interests.

Ideas from students are discussed and debated by Student Councillors, who then vote on whether to approve these proposals and ideas. While any student can submit ideas, proposals and motions, it is only the elected members of Student Council who can vote. These decisions give direction to the Executive Committee and shape the activities of the elected officers.  Student Council holds all of the elected officers to account.  Student Council also has the authority to expel students from membership of the SU, call a referendum and remove trustees.  It also has responsibility for the election of student trustees, the policy of the SU and (together with the trustees) making and amending the bye-laws.
