Discuss and debate a wide range of issues from fees and cuts, to environmental issues, to the direction you want your Students’ Union to take.

Societies Board

The Societies Board exists to affiliate new societies to the Students’ Union and assists in the development, reward and recognition of existing societies. The committee is a subcommittee of Student Council, which means that it reports back to Student Council.

The Board is made up of students who have been a society member or committee member.

There are usually 4 meetings a year, in September, November, February, and March. If you would like to attend a Societies Board meeting, please contact su-societies@qmul.ac.uk, or one of the two chairs (see details below).

Raise an issue

If you’re a student and you have an issue you would like the Board to consider, you can submit a motion to the Board. Please use this form to submit your motion. The Students’ Union Representation and Democracy Team can provide guidance if you are unsure how to write your motion. Please contact the team on su-representation@qmul.ac.uk if you have a question or need guidance.


The Societies Board is co-chaired between the Mile End Societies Officer, and the Barts and The London Societies (BL) Officer. To ensure equal representation between the two campuses, there are also three Mile End Representatives and three BL representatives.

The other members are:

  • Joan Puig Claravalls (Mile End)
  • Neha Kasera (Mile End)
  • Rob Tucker (BL)
  • Sundy Papalois (BL)

There are currently 2 unfilled role, 1 Mile End Representative and 1 BL Representative.

All members of the Societies Board are current students that have been elected to represent societies.

The Societies Board is also attended by the Students’ Union President (or delegate), the Societies Development Coordinator, and the Student Engagement Administrator who acts as the Board’s Secretary, who minutes the meeting and helps with the operation of the meeting.
