Liberation Forums

Students sitting in a lecture theatre

Each term the Students' Union Liberation Officers organise forums where students gather to discuss particular issues and share experiences as members of a particular student group. The Liberation Forums are led by Part-time Officers who are elected each March by students who self-identify in each group.

The five liberation groups are:

  • LGBT+ Students
  • Black and Minority Ethnic Students
  • Disabled Students
  • Women
  • Trans Students

We also have three identity groups - Widening Participation Students, International Students and Mature + Part Time Students which are led by Part Time officers too!

For more information about forums for 2016-17 academic year, please contact

You can also join the Disabled Students' NetworkBME NetworkWomens Network, Widening Participation Network or International Students Network on Facebook at any time.

Minutes from forums can be found in our Minutes and Reports archive.
