The Students’ Union

Students Union LogoThe University of Wolverhampton Students’ Union is an independent charity 
‌that is run by students for students.

Welcome to the University of Wolverhampton Students’ Union. We’re here for ALL students, regardless of course, mode or location of study. We’re here to represent you, advise you and make sure you get the most out of your University experience. We also want you to be equipped with the right skills so when it comes time to leave, you’re ready to take advantage of more opportunities than when you arrived. To find out how we do this, read on. 

Your Union is led by a team of Student Officers, each with responsibility over a specific area relating to student life. These Officers, both full & part time, are elected by the student body each year in cross campus elections. Your full time Officers are:

 

  • Anisah Khalid – Academic Officer - The Academic Officer coordinates the academic representation system. They will actively monitor higher education issues on the local and national scale and will attend University meetings to represent students’ views on academic issues. They will liaise regularly with the other full time Officers, senior University staff, Union and University departments in order to recognise and respond to emerging educational/academic needs of our students.

  • Issic Romel – Union Affairs Officer - The Union Affairs Officer will take the student lead responsibility on the development and delivery of the Student Unions’ democratic structure policies and procedures. They will with other Officers lead on representing and providing a voice for as wide a cross section of our 21,000 students.

  • Majid Akhtar – Community Officer - The Community Officer’s role will include, supporting and representing students on issues such as housing, catering, transport, health and well-being and the environment.

    A key role will be engaging with our students to enable them to participate and lead on student-led activities and projects.

  • Ik Mirembe – Diversity Officer - The Diversity Officer will cover equality and diversity issues, ensuring that there is a real resource from the student union in representing our diverse community. They will have specific responsibility for BAME, international, liberation groups and TNE students.

Student Voice

If your assignments weren’t being marked on time or you felt there weren’t enough computers available for you to complete your work, who would you speak to about it? Apart from your Union Officers you can get in touch with your course/faculty representative, a fellow student on your course/in your faculty who’s volunteered their time to listen to student views and resolve any issues as necessary. To find out more about the Student Voice system including how to become a course, school or faculty representative go to www.wolvesunion.org/voice.
