Speak Week is a full week dedicated to collecting feedback about your student experience at BU.
Every student at BU has a Student Rep, and during Speak Week those Reps come together to raise awareness of the importance of why you should feed back about your experience.
Throughout the week SUBU have organised stalls on both campuses where Reps will be asking for your feedback and ideas on all things university related. Each of SUBU's five Councils will host a different day during the week, so each day will have a different theme. Everything you share during Speak Week will then be anaylsed by the Reps following week, ready to be shared with the university.
At the last Speak Week, you shared an impressive 1,829 pieces of feedback with your Reps, on issues from international student support to assessment and feedback, teaching and learning, and much more - so make sure you get involved to have your say!
You Said, This Happened
Speak Week is also an opportunity for us to share details of some of the ways BU has used your feedback to make improvements - check your BU inbox for Monday's edition of Your BU Weekly or have a look at the student feedback section of our website for more details.

There will be a couple of competition running during Speak Week.
If you post a selfie on Snapchat with your feedback using the Speak Week filter and send it to @sububournemouth you’ll be entered into a draw to win a £25 voucher to use in a SUBU venue or your choice e.g. the Engine Room, Dylan’s, Ground Up etc.
Also just for Reps, if you take a selfie wearing your purple Rep hoodie on campus during Speak Week and post it on Facebook or Twitter using #SpeakWeek17, you’ll also be entered into a separate SUBU prize draw, so wear your purple with pride!
