We represent you. This means that we make sure students’ interests are at the heart of University policy and decisions. We communicate to the senior leadership team on your behalf, and feed back our work to you. That way, you can hold us accountable and make sure we honour your votes.
We want to make sure that we give you opportunities to shape your own student experience. This means supporting students in creating clubs and societies, as well as delivering a range of activities, and training student leaders.
We think it's important to support students in every positive way possible, and that means running campaigns and raising awareness about issues that matter. We do not attempt to have all the answers, but we are a friendly bunch, and if additional support is needed, we will always aim to signpost you to such sources of support in the wider Student Experience team (you can read more about them on our website).
