Online Referenda and Student Forums 2019

Online referenda are one of the many ways you can have your say through OUSA. Whether it's about university policy or a wider issue, you can change OUSA's stance. Our referenda have three stages; a call for questions, followed by a student forum to discuss the questions with the executive and then the voting period.
