Ideas & Stances

Have Your Say forum

Leeds Beckett Students' Union takes a position on a number of issues that affect students at Leeds Beckett; these are known as stances. We also take forward actions on a number of ideas submitted by students via our Have Your Say tool.

A full list of our currect ideas and stances can be found below - these take a number of forms, from our current Have Your Say platform, through to 'policy' passed under our previous democratic forum, the Student Council. If you have any questions about any of the stances found here, or would like to get involved in any of the actions listed, please contact us at

All ideas and stances remain live for 3 academic years before expiring. When a stance is due to expire, the Student Officer team will review the stance and recommend to the appropriate discussion forum that they should be either renewed without amendment for up to three years, amended or allowed to lapse.
