WHAT HAS THE AGM ACHIEVED?

During past Annual General Meetings, students have actively shaped the course of our student community. Here’s a glimpse of some impactful motions passed by students in previous gatherings:

  1. Enhancing Governance: A motion to update the Union’s governance and introduce new postgraduate representation.

  2. Advocating for Students: Students voted to lobby for tuition fees rebates for home, EU, and international students, considering the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic

  3. Fixed Fees Advocacy: The Union championed the cause of fixed fees for international students, ensuring fairness and predictability

  4. Climate Crisis Focus: Students united to emphasise the climate crisis and support the campaign against the Third Runway at Heathrow.

  5. Brunel Student Justice: The Student Union received backing to support Brunel Student Justice—a student group who ran a rent strike to help secure an exit to on campus rental contracts during COVID-19

  6. Tuition Fee Reduction: Students called for a reduction in tuition fees, advocating for accessible education.

Your participation matters! Join us at this year’s AGM to continue shaping the future of Brunel University. 🙌🎓🌟
