We Want Your Ideas
Got an idea about how your Union could change? Want to improve your University? Or make a positive impact on the local community?
Your Students’ Union is your voice. Give us your ideas and we’ll shout about them.
Submit Your Idea
How Does It Work?
Any student can submit their idea at any time of year. Your idea will go to the Scrutiny Committee that meets every 3 weeks. It’s their job to compile all the ideas and direct them to the correct forum where the idea will be debated and discussed.
University Forum: Any issues, improvements or new ideas relating to the university (eg. academic support, student representation, lectures) fall within this forum.
Community Forum: Any issues, improvements or new ideas relating to the city of Cardiff and local community fall within this forum.
Union Forum: Any issues, improvements or new ideas relating to the student union fall within this forum.
Yes: if the committee reaches a 75% majority in your favour your idea has been discussed and it has been decided that it can work. Your idea will become Union policy and we will work with other students to implement it.
No: if the committee reaches a 75% majority against your idea, we won't be implementing it this time round.
If they can’t reach the 75% majority, the idea will go to one of four annual referendums. This gives all students the opportunity to have their say on contentious issues.
