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. 

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!

    Improvements in Ayr Catering Facilities

    Current
      Food in the catering areas in Ayr is expensive for the portion sizes received and is especially disproportionately expensive in relation to the income of the average student. Additionally, the University should improve the service at the catering facilities. At peak lunch times, it is not unusual for process of ordering and paying for food to take around 30 minutes which is almost impossible if lunch falls between classes. Catering staff often take their breaks during busy meal times which slows service further. There should be additional pay terminals to increase service times.

      Why you think it is important

      All students should have access to a reasonably priced and timely catering service whilst on campus.

      Is there anything else you think we should know?
