In 2014, we carried out our largest ever research project seeking to gain insights into how students view the Students' Association and what support they felt they need from their Students' Association.

We’ve listened to all of the feedback, some of it good, some of it not so good, and used that as the basis of a new Strategic Plan. For example, the single most important thing students wanted us to focus on was improving their academic experience. This is now one of the goals in our plan.

Everything we do is aimed at making sure students have the best possible experience while at university, be that through academic and social support or facilitates we provide, but we know that currently as it stands there are areas we need to work on to make sure we are more relevant to students and make a positive difference in their lives.

Your feedback has directly led to the creation of new goals and supporting activity for the organisation and will ensure that we are moving in a direction that will eventually see the Students' Association at the heart of students’ lives.

We recognise that there is still a lot of work to be done to achieve our goals which is why the plan runs for 4 years. During that period you will begin to see changes in how we operate and how we communicate with our members. We will still want to hear from you throughout which is why we will continue to carry out research and provide opportunities for students to let us know how they think we’re doing.
