What is the Student Council?
The Student Council is the main representative body of the Students’ Union and is made up of students who represent different groups from across the University such as Student Reps and Student Group (e.g. society) leaders. Its main function is to be a discussion and debating forum for London Met students to discuss relevant issues and to make policy proposals for the Students' Union. A key function of the Student Council is to hold to account our executive officers (full and part-time officers).
It also provides an opportunity for students to share information from their course, school, student group, or liberation forum with fellow students. The Student Council is also a great way for students to develop their skills such as confidence, communication, interpersonal, and public speaking skills. It is an opportunity to meet fellow students, make friends and develop their social and networking circles. All students are welcome to attend and speak at Student Council meetings.
The Student Council is convened in accordance with the LMSU Memorandum and Articles of Association (part 4) and Byelaw 3 of the LMSU Governing documents.

What is the time commitment for Student Council members?
All Student Council members must attend a training session or complete their online Student Council training online (see above). They are expected to attend each Student Council meeting that takes place and expected to spend some time reading the agenda and agenda papers (these are lists of matters to be discussed at the meetings) prior to each meeting and after the meeting the minutes (notes of what was discussed). Further time commitment is optional. There will be plenty of opportunities to support other Students' Union activities, and events depending on your circumstances.
Within the Student Council, there are also various other opportunities available for members to consider stepping up to. For example, the Chair and Deputy-Chair of the Student Council will be elected by and from existing members at the November 2023 meeting. The Chairs prepare the agenda, run the meetings and take a leadership role in making the Student council happen. They are given additional training and full, ongoing support.
The Student Council is run in accordance with the article and bye-law 3 of the Students' Union governing documents (or constitution)
