Here at Edinburgh University Students' Association, we recognise that everyone’s time as a student is unique, but we also know that strong student groups can make people feel at home and ensure that all students are represented within the Students’ Association, the University, and beyond.
That’s why we have eight Student Groups, each of which has an elected Convenor who you can contact if you have any questions or concerns relating to that Group. These groups are part of the Students' Association's wider democratic structure.
Four of these groups exist to represent students from groups which are traditionally under-represented at University and within the Students' Association; these are:
And the other four exist to represent communities of students who have traditionally been marginalised in or excluded from Higher Education, and who continue to experience oppression in wider society. We call these Liberation Groups and you can learn more about what Liberation means here. The four groups which fall into this category are:
These groups exist to provide a sense of community, offer support, and form a base for campaigning. For more information about the groups including what they do and how you can get involved, please visit the links above.
If you have any questions about the individual groups then you can find contact details for the Convenors and relevant staff members on the group pages, but for more general queries about the Student Groups and the Students' Association's democratic structures you can email email@example.com.
