Union Senate: an update on Full-Time Officer progress

In News

Earlier this month, we had our first Senate meeting of the academic year.  One of the main purposes of the Senate is to hold the Sabbatical Officers to account. At each of the meeting, our officers give an update on their plan and students can ask questions about progress.

Union Senate also monitors the work of our Zone Committees, Union Officers and Trustee Board, check considerable expenditure by the Students’ Union and takes decisions on major Union issues. These meetings are open to everyone – any student can speak at and take part in Senate meetings, but only the members … Read the rest

PGRs: An update from your PGR Officer, Mike

In General

Hi fellow PGRs,

Just wanted to catch you all up on what’s been happening at the Students’ Union lately.

Intercampus Travel: We’re pleased to confirm that if you’re an interdisciplinary PGR in FNES, FEE or Medicine who travels regularly between University campuses you should now be able to arrange with your graduate school to reclaim your bus fares if they exceed £100 a year. This has been agreed with the Doctoral College and should mean that PGRs in this position should no longer be left significantly out of pocket for what is a research expense.

Mental Health: This is a … Read the rest

In General

Your Campus President, Ryan, has been busy working away to improve the WSA student experience. Here is what he has been getting up to:

Shuttle Bus

You asked us to improve the connections between WSA and Highfield, so we made a FREE shuttle bus available for you to travel between campuses during term-time. All you need to do is present your Student ID as you board. You can find the timetable here.

The Sabb Snapchat Takeover

In General

In order to make the work of the Students’ Union more transparent to students, your Full-Time Sabbatical Officers will be taking over the Students’ Union Snapchat account tomorrow.

Students often don’t see the work that the Officers do day-to-day to improve student life until now!

Expect to see an insight into Officers’ working day starting tomorrow with your SU President, Ben Franklin, who will be posting video updates onto the social networking app.

Add us at: YourSUSU for updates.
