Student Council is the decision making body of the Students’ Association of the University of the West of Scotland (SAUWS).  It is the forum for UWS students to voice their concerns and where they can make decisions about the direction of the Students’ Association and the University. 

Our policies shape the direction that the student's association take and can be about anything that concerns students. For example, current policy means SAUWS works together with UWS to work on things as varied as improving food offerings on campus to improving support for student entrepreneurs to lobbying for a library fine amnesty.  Policy also leads on more national areas - and means that SAUWS will always campaign against fee charges or fee interests for students. It might even be something small, such as the banning of Blurred Lines from being played in association spaces. 

If you would like to see how our Sabbatical Officers are making progress on previously passed policies you can click here!
 

ANY student can submit policy using the form below - your ideas don't need to be complicated! 

Once policies are submitted they will be put online here, and any student may comment or ask for clarification.

If you submit a policy suggestion you will be invited to student council to present it - but you don't have to. In your absence the Union Chair will read your submission - and then your elected student reps will vote on the policy.

So give us your ideas, and help us work for you!

    Representation for students in student accommodation

    Passed
      To start working with the Acommodation department within the university and other relevant parties to have student reps for all blocks of UWS’ acommodation. There will be meetings with accommodation staff and sabbatical officers to discuss issues brought to the reps. A representative cannot also work for the ResLife team

      Why you think it is important

      It is important that issues that people have are able to be brought to the attention the same manner course issuees are

      Is there anything else you think we should know?

      Strathclyde University operate a system of halls reps, this system was researched and adjusted appropriately for UWS (ie. across many campuses)
