What are they?

The SU is led by students and so every year we ask our members "What do you want us to work on?". We turn this into a list and you vote on the four you would like GSU to work on.

Once these are set, each of the GSU Officers are responsible for updating and ensuring work is being done on them. 


How does this happen?

Each year we consult our members about their university experience, perception of the SU, challenges they face and what can be done by building solutions to the issues identified.

We consolidate all our findings into a priority ballot for you to decide the top priorities which the SU/Officers should work on for the next academic year.

In our GSU Elections, candidates interpret these priorities and build a case as to why they are best fit to be elected to address them. Those officers elected by you are then mandated to work on the priorities and will be held accountable throughout the year in how they have addressed them.


2021/22 Student Priorities Results

We consulted with 400 of you in November 2019 across every campus and then narrowed the priorities down. Over the course of December 2019 - January 2020, 531 students voted on which priorities they wanted the Students' Union to work on to effectively represent the needs across various categories related to their student experience..

You can now see the priorities chosen by the student body for the upcoming academic year 2020/21.
