Student Councillors - As the highest representational body at City, the Council are responsible for voting on and setting the policy of the Union, which in turn sets the direction of the Union’s work. If you are a Student Councillor, you will speak up for your area of study at Council meetings, participate in debates and vote on the direction of the Union. In recent years, the Student Councillors have led or influenced our stances on diversity, additional funding for societies, sustainability, removing evening exams, keeping Wednesday’s afternoon free and much more.
