Governance Review

In 2014/15, the Students’ Union President commissioned a “Governance Review” to look at our democratic structures and processes and ensure that we are still relevant to our members – you! We surveyed students in 2015 on how they want to be represented and the majority of respondents told us that they want to be represented by academic area. Students also told us that they want to be more involved in the Union’s decision making-processes and make change. In response to this, we held a first referendum in December. You can find out more about the changes we are proposing here and hear from our Student Officers what the next steps are. We are committed to continue the review of of our governance structures and democratic processes in the next academic year.

The Student Written Submission is a clear demonstration of how the University take into consideration the Union’s view of students’ academic, and overall university experience.
