Your Voice

Cardiff University Students’ Union is led and directed by you, its 30,000+ student members. All Cardiff University students automatically become members of the Union when they enrol for their degree.

The Union works constantly to take students’ views to where they count by providing opportunities for students to debate, give ideas and enact change.

Your Union works closely with the University to ensure you’re represented at every level. The Student Voice team manage the Student Academic Rep structure in partnership with the University. Student Academic Reps are volunteers who represents the views of you and your coursemates to your School, College, University and the Students' Union - so make the most of them!

You can make a difference to how your Union is run by voting in at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) that takes place in the first semester each year. The Union is led by seven Elected Officers voted for by you, the students, so keep your eye out for elections and get involved by either running for an Officer position or voting for your favourite candidates.
