Education Councils and Activities Councils are two democratic meetings which set the policies of the Students’ Union (SU). It is an open meeting where every one is welcome. So if you have a campaign you want to start, something you want the SU to do, or if you want something completely new then the councils are the place to go.
We have two councils, the Education Council and Activities Council, both hold your elected Officers to account, so if their is anything that you are unhappy about, or if you want to praise your elected reps, then come to council.
If you want to submit an idea to either council just email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need some help developing your idea please come and visit the Student Voice office in the Campus Centre Building Room 1.11.
Education Council deals with all matters educational, so if you have a problem with anything to do with your degree, then Education Council is the place to be.
All students are welcome to attend, and have a vote at Education Council.
Activities Council deals with all other elements of life at University. So if you have any thoughts about Sports, Societies, Volunteering and Demon Media at the SU then Activities Council is the place to go.
All students are welcome to attend, and have a vote at Activities Council.
The constitution is a set of fundamental principles that the Students’ Union is to be governed by.
The Students’ Union has a set of rules and regulations (called bye-laws) which control how it’s ran.
Policies are an important way of setting the direction of the Students’ Union. These are the Policies that are active and have been brought and passed through the councils.
