How it works

Submit

Submit an idea... anything that could improve student experience is a valid idea.

 

  • You must be a BCU student, logged in using your student account
  • You can choose to submit anonymously, so your name won’t be displayed.
    BCUSU staff will still be able to see your name and email to contact you

 

Discuss

You will be contacted by one of the Activities and Representation Coordinators to discuss your idea and make any relevant changes to it.

Vote

Your idea then goes live, here on the Ideas Board for other students to vote and comment.

It will be live until:

  • it reaches 25 positive votes
    or until the end of the academic year (whichever comes first)
  • Students can vote with a thumbs up (agree) or thumbs down (disagree)
  • Votes and comments will help the Executive Officer team make decisions

 

Action

If your idea reaches the 25-positive vote threshold:

 

  • it will be handed over to the Executive Officer team for review
  • they will discuss the idea and decide what action to take
  • the comments section will be updated with the agreed upon actions

If an idea is raised to hold an Executive Officer to account, and it gains 25 positive votes, it will be reviewed at Scrutiny Group.
