Meet the Student Council

The student council is a group of students who were elected by the student body to represent them at a university level; they are responsible for organising events and recreational activities throughout the academic year. However, they are also a group of highly motivated individuals who genuinely aspire to make each academic year as rewarding and exciting as possible and are always there to help. Each rep has their own responsibilities however; they are all able to help in any way necessary. All students are encouraged to feel free to share any suggestions or ideas with the student council at any time throughout the year. Below you have the chance to meet them all prior to arriving at university!
