Constitution & Bye-Laws


About Constitution & Bye-Laws

The Students' Union's constitution and bye-laws is a list of rules and regulations which the Students' Union works to. It covers areas such as Students' Union Officers powers, committee, sports club and society regulations, the Union complaints procedure and our policies.

The constitution is reviewed annually around the time of the Students' Union Officer elections (March). Proposed changes are then voted in a referendum. However, students can make a submission to amend the constitution at any time by calling a referendum themselves.
