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!

    CCTV camera at all strategic lecture rooms and common rooms.

      CCTV should be in all the common rooms and lecture rooms to prevent the activities of thieves and stealing .

      Why you think it is important

      I forgot my phone charger at the common room between E and F block ground floor, I went back after 1 hour and it has been stolen. I am 100% sure I forgot the charger at that projector section of the common room because I didn't go anywhere after leaving that place than my lecture room and I discovered I wasn't with it, I went back to check and it has been stolen.

      Is there anything else you think we should know?

      I am getting a new charger but I just wish to protect other students so as to be prevented from future occurrences because it can only take a thief to do that and it doesn't speak well of UWS students to be stealing.
