Student Council is the democratic decision-making body of the Students’ Association, and all students are welcome to submit motions for discussion, attend meetings, and vote. 

 

 

 

Student Council runs from 6-8pm, usually on the last Thursday of each month. It is generally held in the Debating Hall, where students have been meeting to discuss the issues that affect them since Teviot was first built. 

 

The Student Council meeting dates for semester two are: 

  • February 27th, 6-8pm, Upper Hall, Pleasance

    • The deadline to submit a motion for this meeting is: 10am on Tuesday 18th February

    • Draft papers can be found here

    •  

  • March 26th, 6-8pm, Upper Hall, Pleasance

    • The deadline to submit a motion for this meeting is: 10am on Tuesday 17th March

 

 

 

Any student can submit a motion – all you need is a good idea, and 20 students who agree!

 

Student Council also has a campaigns budget of £3000, which is controlled by our Elected Reps. To find out more about what this can be used for and how to apply for it, click here

 

If you would like to discuss your motion before submitting it, or if you aren’t sure whether your idea should be a motion, email us at makeachange@eusa.ed.ac.uk or check out our Guide to Writing A Motion
