4:15pm on 31 Mar 22 This idea from Jack was a really great one, but it's been left for 6 months to only then be responded too on the 24th of march? We could've started organising this and having a festival over the summer but instead it's had no feedback!

1:07pm on 7 Apr 22 This idea took a long time to reach the required 16 votes in order to be passed to the officer team that's why it was only progressed in late March.

11:58am on 3 May 22 This idea has been rejected by the officer team partly because its not well suited to an ongoing policy position from the SU it was felt that this was a good idea that could have been implemented through societies activity.

How it works


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



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


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



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.
