Democracy & Governance

The Students’ Union is a student-led, democratic organisation.

This means that each year you, our members, elect 5 Student Leaders and 39 Volunteer Officers who lead your Union, and work with the University to represent your views and make sure the student experience is the best it can be.

To make sure that your Student Leaders and Volunteer Officers are making the changes you want to see, we ask students to submit their ideas for change through SUggestions, our online ideas hub, talk to your Student Leaders and Volunteer Officers or call All Student Members Meetings to present proposals for change.

You can also submit Proposals to create Students’ Union policy to an All Student Members Meeting, or online through your SUggestions platform.
