One huge way in which we make sure that everyone has the opportunity to share their opinions is through the election of Student Representatives in each course and year.
Elected by peers, student Reps ensure that the voices of all students are heard and provide a crucial link to University staff and management; enabling feedback, opinions and the thoughts of the students to be heard throughout the University.
This provides all of our students with a way of sharing their thoughts about their University experience and helping to implement necesary changes and make the big decisions that effect them and future generations of LAU students.
Our Student Reps speak with University management, course leaders, tutors and the Union in regular meetings throughout the year. They will speak and listen to their fellow students and take forward issues, problems and positive feedback from their course and University experience.
Our Student Reps are highly valued in their role and play an important part in creating positive change and making the University a great place to study.

FORUM aims to create an inclusive and accessible space for all voices. Our FORUM open meetings give all students the chance to speak out and discuss their University experience, including union events, opportunities and support. We want to learn what is important to you and what you want to see from the union.
FORUM meetings are held regularly throughout the year and all students will be invited to join.
Watch this space for your 2023-24 FORUM dates. All students will be invited via email.

Each year, we hold the Student Elections. Whether you want to run for one of the Executive Officer roles or just exercise your democratic right, the annual Student Elections give every student the opportunity to decide who will lead the Union for the year ahead. Your Union will listen to your ideas and opinions, organise campaigns, events, activities & societies for you to get involved in.
There are a number of roles up for grabs each year. The Student President role is a paid position and is open to any graduating student that year. All other roles can be filled by any current student.
Being part of the Union’s diverse team can provide you with a huge amount of experience that will prove to be invaluable in your future! Successful students will develop new skills and gain confidence in communication and leadership through meetings, organising events and activities; whilst campaigning and creating positive change. You’ll not only have a great year but you will play an important role in making a difference to your fellow students.
