Start a Network

Students talking to one another


Can't find the network you're looking for? Why not start one from scratch!


To create a new network you'll need a minimum of 3 students to form the committee. The required roles are Lead, Secretary and Treasurer. All networks have the full support of the Students' Union. We provide comprehensive training, day-to-day support and development opportunities for all committee members. You can find the benefits of being a network committee member here. If you have any questions about starting a network, please get in touch.


The network committee will be responsible for running the network. This includes being the key contacts for the Students' Union and University, coordinating the students within the network, applying for funding and more. They are also expected to chair or facilitate monthly meetings for members. Please note that only students who identify with the group their network represents can form the committee.


When you have 3 students who are happy to sit on the committee, please fill out the form below. All Network Affiliation Forms are reviewed by our Vice President Community and Student Voice Manager. When they have made a decision, a member of the Student Voice team will be in touch to let you know whether your application has been successful or not. If successul, we'll support you in getting your network off the ground!
