What are Representational Associations?

 

Representational Associations are in place to represent the diverse characteristics of students at the University. These are student-led groups whose focus is on supporting campaigns and creating policies that directly improve the experience of individuals from the background they represent.

 

Representational Associations are:

·         Black and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Students’ Association

·         Women Students’ Association

·         International/EU Students’ Association

·         Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans*, Plus (LGBT+) Students’ Association

·         Students with Disabilities Association

·         Students of Faith Association

 

How do I Join?

Representational Associations are open to all students, the only requirement is that you need to self-define as having the association’s characteristic, e.g. a member of the LGBT+ community, or a disability. If you would like to join any of the Representational Associations, all you need to do is fill in the groups form that is on the website (TBC) and that will alert the relevant head of the association that you wish to join. You will then be invited to the next meeting.
