As a students’ union we are directed by you, our members. Participating in the Student Members meeting is one of the ways that you can get involved. All students are welcome to attend and participate in voting if they are Union members. The Student Members meeting is a large forum where all students are invited to debate and determine the direction of SUBU.

They will made into Union policies and your Full-Time Officers will work on making them reality. Thank you all for coming along to the Student Members Meeting, and having your voice heard!


In addition to the new idea, students also voted to approve SUBU's affiliations.

Read the draft minutes of the meeting here.



Throughout the year any student can submit their idea to make SUBU the best that it can be via the 'Your Ideas' platform here. Students can vote and comment on ideas. The Chair then decides which ideas should be taken forward and debated at the Student Members' meeting.



If you want to make any changes to the ideas once they are published you must do this prior to the deadline. These will then either be accepted by the person who put forward the idea or taken forward to the meeting to be debated.




If you want to make your voice heard but are unable to make the meeting you can vote via proxy! This means that you'll submit your votes online prior to the meeting. 

Typically the Chair will act as your proxy, however you can elect another student who is in attendance to act as your proxy. You must provide their details to do this.
