Your Big Ideas

Do you have an Idea about how to make the Students’ Union, University or the wider community better for students?

Your Big Ideas are a great way to make meaningful change on campus. Submit your Idea online and share with your friends and course mates. If your Big Idea achieves 50 or more votes in favour after 28 days, it will be taken forward; either to an appropriate meeting such as Students’ Council or by meeting with the appropriate person(s) to help make your idea a reality. If a Big Idea gets approval at Students’ Council, it will become Students’ Union policy and we will work with you on making it happen!

To submit an Idea or vote on any of the current Big Ideas below, you must be logged in using your UCLan student login. Once logged in, the option to submit will appear and to vote, just click the thumbs up or down button - depending on your opinion! 

Previous Big Ideas-turned reality have included free period provisions on campus, an extension to the academic calendar and free disability screening.

Anyone can submit a Big Idea. It’s an easy way to change the lives of students!

    Part-time employment opportunities for students seeking real-time work experience during their course




      My cohort has 300 students, all of them are international students and I find not even a meagre per cent of students have a part-time job related to their course. We are looking for professions or career-oriented jobs which will help them apply what they are pursuing as a student.

      My big idea speaks about building a platform that has verified part-time career-oriented jobs from the university level and SME's (Small and Medium Enterprises) around the place. There are job portals like handshake but they have very few jobs and most of those listed are not career-oriented. 

      Expecting support from the university for better part-time working opportunities.
