    NUS Student Strike: Walk Out Teach In

      Please vote for this idea if you would like your Students' Union to support the NUS Student Strike on Wednesday the 2nd of March, NUS are asking for the following from the UK Government. Fully funded: higher and further education to be funded by governments - free at the point of use for students - with proper pay, pensions and conditions for staff across education and beyond. Accessible: creating safe and inclusive spaces – built for students here and now - and uprooting disablism in our education. Lifelong: there to support us from cradle to grave - think less restrictive, more fluid & flexible. Democratised: giving students more power and agency over our own learning. If you have any questions or would like to know more please get in touch with Victoria, your Union President via email on: or DM via MS Teams under the name of Union President.

    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.
