Vote and submit ideas!

The Ideas System is simple way for students to submit ideas and vote on ideas from other students. If it's something simple, we will look into it straight away and see if it can be acheived. If it needs more resource and student support, it needs 20 positive votes to go to Student Council. Here it can be voted on as policy and change can be campaigned for! Click here for more information and previous ideas.

To rate an idea that has already been submitted, simply select thumbs up or thumbs down to indicate whether you like the idea or not. That's how simple our system is! You can also add comments to ideas and start a discussion with your fellow students.

If you have any queries regarding the ideas system, please email

Please note: Once an idea is submitted, it has 2 weeks to reach the 20 positive votes needed. Ideas will automatically go down after 6 months.

    Badge for Course Reps to wear so students can identify


      A vast majority of students in the cohort do not know who their course reps are and are unable to identify them/reach out for help etc. My idea is to give all coursereps a lanyard to wear which displays a badge with their name and course and clearly highlighting that they are a course representative. Doing so will really help students identify coursereps and allow them to approach to talk to before or after lectures and this will highly improve the student experience and will essentially make academic representation more professional and accessible.
