Current Policy

A full list of our currect active policies can be found below. If you have any questions about any of the policies found here, or would like to get involved in any of the actions listed, please contact us at studentvoice@leedsbeckettsu.co.uk.

All policies remain live for 3 academic years before expiring. To retain a policy, students must resubmit the policy as a new motion before the first meeting of Student Council of the year the policy expires.

Please note that from May 2017, any passed policies will feature a new updated structure. Previously we have used the structure of Union Notes, Union Believes and Union Resolves. This has now been updated to Facts, Impacts and Reacts, to aid understanding.
