Students' Union Council

Every month, your elected RSU officers meet for Students’ Union Council (SUC) to discuss issues that impact students and make decisions on the work of the Sabbatical Officer team and wider SU.

Here, Officers provide updates on their campaigns and projects, discuss new Ideas, and review RSU policies and procedures.

All students are welcome to attend SUC to offer feedback or to voice their opinions.
