If you could distil the Union down to its core you'd find change. We manifest the student community at the University of Derby, giving you a collective voice that can be used to change all sorts of things that affect you during your time at university.

Issues with your course can be changed through our Academic Representation scheme and other changes, big and small – from how much money is invested into sports teams down to to what food is on offer in Blends – can happen through our ideas forum.

Even changes to how we effect change can be made through our governance structures. These are all proposed by students and set out the rules on how everything at the Union is done.

Change is at the heart of everything we do, and you are at the heart of every change we make.
