Have your voice heard! We aim to provide you with the tools to shape your student experience, feel empowered to make positive change through championing the views of your fellow students, collaborating on campaigns, and leading on meaningful action. We want every student to get the best out of their studies while at Medway.
Is there something you'd like to see changed at Medway? Step up and speak up!
Campaigning is a way to have your voice heard on campus, in the community, and on a national level. It is about mobilising people in order to achieve meaningful change.
More than simply raising awareness, it is about making a tangible change to policy or behaviour.
Campaigns can touch on topics including academic life, student welfare, sexual health, mental health, campus safety and more. On a national scale, you can get involved in everything from student rights, sustainability, to wider liberation campaigns.
We have a range of officers and staff who are here to support you in making a positive change for students. There are also funds and resources you can apply for.
If you are interested in running a campaign here at Medway then get in touch with your Student Leadership Coordinator via the team at Medway.
You can learn about campaigning at your home unions by following the links below (both open in a new window)

Representatives, or Reps, act as the link between you, your Union and your University.
They are volunteer representatives that are the first port of call for any suggestions, comments or queries about the academic experience. They will act as your advocate during the academic journey and you can approach them with concerns regarding course content, feedback, resources, or exams which they will pass on to the relevant staff or change-makers. They will work in teams to represent all students in that cohort. They also have the chance to sit on decision-making committees at various levels to be a part of the conversation, provide new ideas and enact positive change for students.
Reps are recruited in September and their contacts will be posted on this website. In the meantime, you can contact the Medway Campus Engagement Manager with any questions or feedback.
