It's a regular event where any student can raise issues that impact their student experience
Only elected representatives can vote, but any student can come along and share their views on any issue
Council has four zones that focus on specific topics. To find out more about a Zone just click on it's logo below:
Each zone has 17 students who consider and debate ideas that you suggest. If your idea could change things for the better, it's put forward to a Council meeting for further discussion and put to the vote.
Any student can submit ideas via Change It or Explain It!. These are then discussed in zone meetings depending on their theme
There are five Union Council meetings each academic year.
You can keep up with all the meetings by visiting our Union Council calendar.
Simply, any student! No matter whether you're on a year abroad or a year in industry; whether you're a part-time student or a distance learner; whether you live on or off campus, you can take part. Union Council is fully interactive. It's streamed live so you don't need to miss a thing. You can ask questions on Twitter (@ULSUCouncil), give speeches live via video call and even vote from the other side of the world.
If you're interested then why not come along to our next Union Council meeting. You can find out all the details about this here.
