The Students’ Union is led by students, for students.

This means that you vote to elect the people who will represent and campaign on issues that are affecting you. The Union is committed to making sure that students are at the heart of what we do; which is why we have hundreds of Reps to support you and ensure your views are heard.

Course Reps, School Presidents, Students’ Council, Liberation Officers and your Full Time Officers are just some of the people who help to create positive, meaningful change on campus.
