This July we will welcome an entirely new Students' Union Executive team. Find out what they've got in store.

The Students' Union exec team are your link with the University, they represent your views at the highest levels of the University and have a real say on things that are important to you. This year we have an entirely new team coming into post, and they have got some great ideas to improve your time here. So without further ado, over to the new team, starting with your Students' Union President, Amy Moran.
