Want to have your voice heard in conversations about the big issues on campus and facing you as a student?

Join our Democratic Advisory Team and take part each week to be in with a chance to win a Deliveroo voucher worth £20 in the weekly prize draw!*

In term one we’ll be looking at changes that you want to make at Exeter, and following that up early in term two by setting out the priorities that students want for the next year, to feed into our leadership elections in February.

To take part in the conversation, and to be in with a chance at winning the prize draw, join the conversation on Teams. Everyone joining this week will go into the first draw on Friday 12 November.

* Members of the group who suggest conversations or reply to conversations on a weekly basis will be entered into a prize draw for 1 Deliveroo voucher worth £20.00 - no alternatives can be offered.
