Because we're independent from the University you get to decide how we’re run and what we do. You get to decide this by voting in our elections, getting your voice heard through Student Members Meetings or participating in campaigns. Our core function is representation, which means we dedicate almost all of our resources to making sure your voice gets heard in the University, that your rights as a student are upheld and you get the most out of your degree.
