What is Student Council?

Student Council is the overarching representative body of the Union and provides any student with the opportunity to try to influence the policy, priorities and activities of the SU. Elected Student Councillors represent a range of students from across the University, its campuses, accommodation, and Schools. Ideas from students are discussed and debated by Councillors who then vote on whether to approve these proposals and ideas. You can find a full list of positions here:
