Student Senate

Student Senate is the Students' Union's policy-making body, and any student can run to be a Student Senator. Student Senate has the power to make and review policy, ensuring the Union works to reflect the values and ideals of the student body. Policies passed by Student Senate provide the framework within which the Union and its Elected Officers operate.


The Annual General Meeting and Referenda have higher authority than Student Senate, as they allow all students a vote, not just their elected representatives. However, Student Senate meet five times per year, making it the Union's highest regular decision-making body.


Any student can submit a motion to Student Senate for discussion. This process helps to ensure that the services and activities we provide are in line with student values and ideals.
