REMOVE FINGERPRINT SYSTEM


 

THE IDEA

Students wanted the removal of the fingerprint system for International students.

 

ACTION

  • The Activities Officer will discuss the feedback with the International Office to see if any improvements can be made.

 

UPDATE

AUGUST 22ND

  • The fingerprint system is a UK requirement, which the university cannot remove independently. However, they are looking at better alternatives than the current system, which may make the process more pleasant.

 

 

 

WHAT YOU SAID

"The fingerprint system for International students: we as International students feel it is like what prisoners do. The University should treat us as home country students - it is not equal."

 

 

  

 

HOW IT WORKS

1. Students submit ideas during Change Week.

2. Teams of students gather to hack solutions to the biggest problems.

3. Teams pitch their ideas to a panel of University big wigs.

4. SU Officers and teams work with staff to make the ideas a reality.
