Freshers’ Fair/Welcome Week is organised by the campus Student Services and the Student Association are available to support and advice in the organisation. The CSCC will encourage clubs and societies to attend their campuses Freshers’/Induction Fair, and also Refreshers Fairs.
As the Student Association Executive work across all 14 campuses, attendance at Freshers’ Fair will be based on availability with at least 6 weeks’ notice due to this being a particularly busy period.
Welcome Heroes are, at the moment, appointed by the Executive Team from elected officers from the previous year who have confirmed they will be staying on at the University or other students as time and necessity requires.
The Annual Student-Led Awards were set up to ensure that students could nominate any staff member for an award if they have made an exceptional contribution to the student experience.
The deadline for nominations is March, the nominations are then anonymised by the SAEO, and the SAP convenes two panels, a shortlisting and winners panel (comprising of the SAP and student representatives) to decide the shortlisted staff and winning staff. Winners are announced by early June.
All winning staff are given a Student Association branded mug with the word “winner” on and a certificate from the SAEO and SAP congratulating them on their nomination and win. Additionally, the winner of the “Best Overall Tutor” and "Best Overall Business Professional" award has previously been awarded an engraved trophy (along with the mug), which is presented at the next available graduation by the SAP and Vice Chancellor.
Clubs and societies currently sit within, are funded and administrated by, campus Student Services. The Student Association is responsible for the support and promotion of clubs and societies.
The purpose of club and society handover is to ensure continuity of the student activities offering. The handover of existing clubs and societies takes place from the last week of April to the last full week of May (the specific dates will be circulated by the first week of February each year by the CSCC). A new committee should always be elected within this time frame and their contact information given to both the Student Services department of their campus and the CSCC. This information must also include all the relevant forms attaining to the club or society.
