All meetings of Student Council will start at 5.15pm and lasts around two hours. This year, all Student Council meetings will take place via Zoom. However, should the restrictions allow, we hope to be able to allow some members to attend in person for the meetings after Christmas. For each meeting all students are invited to attend Student Council, and details will be announced closer to the time about how you can join. However, if you would like to vote, but are not one of our 'core councillors' you can register for one of 20 casual places

If you have a voting place, for the meeting make sure you have to have to hand a charged mobile device as you will need this to use our OMBEA voting system. If you have any access requirements please get in touch.

If you would like to propose a motion so that it is discussed at Student Council then, unless otherwise stated, the deadline is always 13 days before the council meeting at 10am. For example, the motion deadline for the Student Council meeting on 29 October is 10am on Friday16 October.
