About the Student Union
WHO WE ARE
The FSB Student Union is elected to represent all students and aids in ensuring that your time at FSB is fulfilling and unforgettable. All FSB students automatically become members of the Student Union (SU) when enrolled for their course of study. The SU is presently run by a full-time Student Coordinator and (an elected) SU President in conjunction with elected Student Representatives. Together we provide support, coordinate opportunities and campaign for the best interest of all FSB Students. We are confident in our outlook and direct in addressing concerns with Senior Management.
The FSB Student Union is a student-led organisation. As elected representatives of the student body, we aim to ensure your views and concerns are heard by School Management. This is achieved by:
Actively engaging, where ever possible, in key areas of the School’s Governance process. Presently, the SU President or delegate Student Representative sits on the following committees:
· Executive Committee
· Publications Committee
· Quality Committee
· Learning and Teaching Forum by invitation
· Course Committee
· Operations Committee
· Management Board by invitation
· Academic Board
· Programme Development Review Group
Obtaining student opinion on issues that impact student life is important to us and maintaining the process of democracy and transparency helps ensure the continuation of a structure of partnership between the Student Union and School Management.
We are committed to ensuring students are presented with every opportunity to develop themselves and make a difference in the world of work.

The FSB Student Union provides the framework for an on-campus community for everyone.

The Student Union works closely with FSB staff to ensure student success.
