Who represents me on Union Council?
What power does Council have?
Union Council is the highest decision-making body at the Students' Union, with power to decide our stance on political issues, what projects we should focus our time and resources on, and how we should run as an organisation. If you want to make change, Union Council is the best place to bring your ideas - you can send them to a Council member, or to email@example.com and we'll advise you on what to do next.
How could I become a Council member?
All Council members are elected in campus elections. The next one will take place in Autumn 2019, when 12 seats on Council will be elected. These include the six open space positions (which any student can stand for), and representatives for Postgraduates (Taught), Postgraduates (Research), Student Parents and Carers, Disabled Students, Part-Time Students, Trans Students, and SSH Faculty students. If you're interested in running for one of these roles and being on Council next academic year, register your interest here and we'll be in touch with more information.
Can I complain about or change a Council decision?
