Submit New Idea

Welcome to the ideas platform. This is a place where you can submit an idea for change as well as voting and commenting on other students ideas. The more votes and comments a post gets the more likely it’ll be taken to the SUBU Summit or Student Member’ meeting where students will vote whether to adopt the idea as Union Policy. 

 

 

Your ideas can be about anything, from big structural changes to small amendments. They can call for change from within SUBU, BU or the wider community.  Your ideas can be action based such as asking the Union to lobby the university on a specific issue or ideological such as supporting a specific group. Prior to every meeting of the SUBU Summit and Student Members' meeting the SUBU Summit Chair goes through all your ideas and decides which ones should be developed into motions and taken to the meetings. Motions are discussed and debated and a final vote is then taken. If approved these motions then become Union Policy. You can find out more about Union Policy, as well as viewing the current list of live policies here.

 

When submitting your idea be sure to include the following information in the description:

1. What you think the problem is

2. What you think the solution is

3. What ideas you have for implementation

4. Which Full-Time Officer you think should lead on it

5. What other student groups you think should be involved in this work

6. Your name and student number

 

Once you have submitted your idea one of the team will be in touch to invite you in to discuss your ideas!

    Potentially getting refunds for practicals that have been cancelled if they are not rescheduled

    Current
      I was thinking that loan money that is put towards provision of practicals, whether that be materials or other requirements, could be reimbursed if those practicals cannot be taken particularly recently with all of my Forensic Science practicals currently cancelled. As this is the backbone of my degree, I think we are entitled to some help in making sure the lack of practical experience is capitalised on by having the money given back to the SLC if the practicals cannot/are not rescheduled.
