The Students’ Voice 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.
Students' Voice is the successor to Students' Council and has been implemented as part of our wider Governance and Accountability changes (please see our Constitution here for full details of our changes). Any registered student at UWS can attend and participate in Students' Voice.
