Spring Elections campaigning has begun

In What's on

Who do you think should lead the Union during 2018/19?

Campaigning in our Spring Elections has now begun for all candidates. The countdown is on to Elections Night Live (Friday 02 March), so candidates will need to win those all important votes (you may have spotted lots of posters around campus!).

It can be tricky to decide who you think is the best person for each role. On Monday SUSUtv  live streamed seven Meet the Candidates interviews, to grill each candidate running for a Full-Time Officer role on their key points and how they would implement these, should they … Read the rest

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.

Hot Water: an update!

In News

Hello everyone, Samuel Dedman here – VP Education for the 2017/18 year. My role encompasses everything to do with educational experience at the University, including a whole bunch of work on study spaces and facilities.

Quite a few of us have been asking about free hot water access – this is something which the Students’ Union’s Academic Reps have campaigned on for many years now, and I’m pleased to bring a series of updates on the issue.

You might not be aware but the Students’ Union outlets have never charged for hot water and provide this free of charge to … Read the rest

Printing: An Update!

In News

Hello everyone! For those who don’t know me, my name is Samuel Dedman and I’m VP Education at the Students’ Union.

Academic Rep Voting starts tomorrow

In General

For the last couple of weeks, students have been busy nominating candidates (or themselves) for the Academic Rep elections. Your VP Education, Shruti, has been making announcements via her Facebook profile and event, there has been lots of flyering and we have even had a helping paw from Susu the cat to encourage students to get involved and nominate themselves to make positive change.

Academic Reps are there to help improve students’ courses by feeding back any comments from course members to the University. We support Reps to help ensure the University listens. In return, they are awarded with responsibility … Read the rest
