What goes on

The function of the assembly is to have reflective and informed discussion to lead to decision making that will:

  • Improve the student experience
  • Address disadvantages any groups of students are facing 
  • Enforce what students expect and want from their Students’ Union and representation.

Student Assembly is conducted through Round table group deliberation. This means everyone has the opportunity to input their views and opinions through facilitated groups, working towards an agreed set of actions to address a particular issue affecting the student community. Therefore every single attendee is shaping proposals and policy through an engaging and accessible format. 

The action points drafted by the Student Assembly are taken to an online vote from which our student representatives have the opportunity to vote on.
