Union Council


Representing you, and shining a light on the issues that matter

Union Council makes up the Union's democratic structure. It's where you can debate and discuss issues or ideas that affect the student body, while elected student representatives can vote on proposals and policies.

If you have any questions about any aspect of Union Council, get in touch with Ian Bruce.

Purpose of Council

Through debating and passing policies/ideas, create change that will enhance the student experience, to set the Union’s stance on key issues, and to identify and conduct campaigns on relevant topics. Everyone is welcome at Union Council and the first 20 students who arrive will be able to vote on the ideas been discussed, joining the  Lead Union Representatives and the Part Time Officers who make up Council 

For more information on how council works we have put together a guide to union council, alternatively why not come along to the  welcome event that is been held at 6.15pm in the Union Square, simply click on the event at the top of this page for further information.

New Ideas System

One of our key goals as a Union is to listen to your views, and then act to improve your University experience. Let us know your ideas quickly and directly by submitting via our simple online Ideas System
