Democracy

The Students' Union is a registered charity and is also regulated under part II of the 1994 Education Act, and is autonomous to Birkbeck College. The Students' Union exists to promote the interests and welfare as well as enhancing the experience of our members who are the current students at Birkbeck College. We do this by providing:

  • Support and advice,
  • A representative voice,
  • Social, cultural and recreational activities,
  • Personal development opportunities,
  • Forums for discussion and debate.

We are a student lead organisation and every year, we hold elections for Sabbatical, non-Sabbatical Officer, and Council Reps. Elected Officers help lead and shape the direction of our Students' Union, so the democracy element is key for us.
