UBU is led by students. The Council is the way that works — students are elected to come and discuss what sort of things we should be asking the University for, and to direct our campaigning.
You'll get training and opportunities throughout the year which will help develop your skills in lobbying, negotiating, debating, and much more.
And we recognise your efforts in your Higher Education Achievement Record which can go on your CV!
The commitment is just one meeting a month for all Council members, plus membership of the Executive Committee for those who take on dedicated roles such as Postgraduate Officer, Inclusion Officer, etc.
