Today the 22/23 Student Exec are taking up their new positions representing all Strathclyde students. Following your votes in the March Elections, the previous Student Exec handed over to your new team who will be working hard for Strathclyde students over the next year.

If you’ve ever wondered who or what the Student Exec are, we’re here to tell you all about your elected Student Exec and what they’ve got planned throughout their journey. They work on all sorts of projects and campaigns to improve student experience at Strathclyde. Last year's Exec achieved lots of wins throughout the year for students. Some highlights include:

  • A new agreement with the University establishing a entrepreneurial partnership between the Union and University
  • Rent freezes in Strathclyde Halls for the 4th consecutive year for students 
  • A No Detriment Approach to education that is a permanent part of policy and procedures at Strathclyde. This approach was broadened for life beyond the pandemic covering critical incidents, pandemics, industrial action (strikes), and adverse weather
  • £140K additional funding for students including a £30k summer hardship fund, £50k digital inclusion fund, £30k refugee and asylum seekers fund and £30k student experience grant fund
