Do you identify as having a disability and want to feedback on key issues that affect your student experience?

Are you a mature student or student parent who feels that Welcome events are not inclusive?

Do you want to raise awareness of ethical and environmental issues facing the university and wider community?


Networks are a way to provide a dedicated space for a particular group of students to meet, socialise, and foster a community. At the same time, it is a way to promote and raise awareness of the distinct voice of that community, if there are any issues specifically facing that community, and what approaches can be made to change this.

Last term, the Medway BAME Network launched with their event ‘Spilling the Tea: Is my Campus Racist?’ to provide a space for BAME students to discuss their university experience and both tackle the challenges and celebrate the successes of BAME students at Medway.  

Planned Networks:

  • BAME Network
  • Commuting & Part-Time Student Network
  • Student Parents Network
  • International Students Network
  • Accessibility Network
  • Mature & Postgraduate Student Network
  • Buddy Network
  • Activities Network
  • Eco Team

Through sharing experiences, we hope to bring new perspectives and ideas that helps drive change to ensure that Medway is welcoming to all.

We want these to be owned by students. We welcome feedback on these groups and shape their aims and objectives, please email [email protected]
