HOW WE REPRESENT THE OPINIONS OF STUDENTS AT UCA

Student opinion really matters to us. We call it the Student Voice and is the most important tool we have when trying to make things better for students at UCA.

COURSE REPS

Course Reps are elected from each year group on every course at UCA to help improve the learning experience of students. They take feedback from other students to the teaching staff to praise good work and try to address any problems. Course Reps are our first line of representation, and can have a great impact on their course.

BIG IDEAS AND ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING Image

BIG IDEAS AND ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

In 2013 we started a project titled Big Ideas, which aims to make it really easy for any student to change or start something at UCA. You simply state what your Big Idea is, and then it is handled by the most appropriate area in the students' union, whether that is the Campus Officer, Student Council, or somebody else.

Part of Big Ideas is our Annual General Meeting, where we report on our work and offer the opportunity for students to create motions, which if successful at vote, will be taken on by the union.
