Our Student Executive makes sure the voice of students is heard loud and clear. It sets policy and political priorities, coordinates campaigns, and holds the Sabb Team to account.

Executive is made up of eighteen representatives, elected by students during our annual leadership elections. Any student can attend its meetings, and everyone can submit ideas for consideration through Your Big Ideas – our online platform for students to suggest ideas to improve the University experience.

There will be at least seven meetings of Executive this academic year and once scheduled, these will be  announced soon!
