Student Senate

Student Senate is the Students' Union's policy-making body (alongside the Annual General Meeting and Referenda), 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.


Any student can submit an idea to the Ideas Platform to be discussed at Student Senate. This process helps to ensure that the services and activities we provide are in line with student values and ideals.
