  • Advocatingand representing the student body

Your feedback is important


To fulfil our role as student advocates, we need to hear from you.

Share with us your thoughts, comments and suggestions on how we can make your student experience even better.

  • A chance to develop your leadership skills
  • Actively working to make your campus a great place to be
