Senedd

Senedd is the highest decision making body at AberSU. Senedd is designed to represent all students, and sets what AberSU believes in and works on. Senedd is led by an elected student chairperson.

All students can submit ideas and speak at any Senedd. If an idea is passed through Senedd it becomes Union Policy for three years, forming part of our work.

What happens at meetings?

 

The Union Chairperson leads all debates during Union Senedd, including making sure Senedd meetings are kept to the required time limits, and making sure any debates stay on topic.

Union Senedd represents the voice of Aberystwyth students by setting policy of the union and making, repealing and admending bye-laws of AberSU jointly with the AberSU Board of Trustees.

We are committed to ensuring equal access to all our students. If you have any queries relating to accessibility, or require any of the meeting documents in a specific format please let us know, email Alice alr80@aber.ac.uk.

What is an idea?

 

An idea is simply a way for you to put forward what you think AberSU should believe or be working on. Once submitted you may well be asked to present it at the next Senedd meeting and if passed (unless otherwise stated by Trustee Board) it will become policy and the Union has to follow it for the next three years. Once accepted, Ideas for Senedd are published for all students to read and suggest amendments.

You can submit an idea or amendment using our online form.
