What is Student Parliament?

Student Parliament is the main democratic decision-making body of the Union. It is where students quiz the Executive as their elected representatives, and debate policy proposals.

All students can attend this meeting and submit policy to Student Parliament. For a policy to be considered at Student Parliament, you will need 20 signatures from students. You can find guidance on submitting policy below.
