Student Council

Student Council is the primary student-led decision making body at the Students' Union. They work together to tackle issues and run campaigns which affect all parts of student life, from your course to the wider University experience.

Our Student Council is made up of a group of elected student representatives including the 5 Elected Officers, Faculty Reps, Groups and Sports representatives, Student Liberation Officers and Student Experience Officers.

The Student Council meets fortnightly in term time - View meetings and minutes.
