Each Student Council meeting holds 20 Casual Places which will be made available to any student who wishes to attend and vote. If you would like to apply for a casual place, either complete the sign-up form below (you will need to log in to the website first) or email Angela (firstname.lastname@example.org). The deadline for applying for a Casual Place is 48 hours before each meeting, so usually the Tuesday before at 5pm.
If you are not allocated a Casual Place or you are not bothered about voting, don’t forget, you can still attend our Council meetings, eat the food and participate in the meeting, you just won't have a vote. If any student allocated a Casual Place doesn’t turn up by the start of the meeting, their casual place will be re-allocated.
What is Student Council?
Our Student Council is the highest student representative body in your Students' Union and is something that you can all get involved in. Student Council exists to ensure students have a say in how their Union is run and what policies are adopted. The Council discusses the campaigns we run, the events we support, hear what your elected officers are up to, and scrutinises the work we are doing every day for our students. Student Council also decides on what major issues may need representing to the University, or nationally within the student movement.
But none of this works without students. This really is your chance to have your say. So what are you waiting for. Register for a voting place today!
