MODULE: Plan Events
There are many diverse ways in which having an external visitor could benefit your society
Public Speakers can inspire ideas
They can share their experiences with a group this can build belief that your society members can go on to do the same.
They might share their career advice or research from other institutions
They could help promote exciting ideas or debate
The University has legal responsibilities around the kinds of ideas and speakers we promote.
We are legally required to gain authorisation from the University of Brighton BEFORE any visitors are invited.
Please see the University’s policy on guest speakers here
Why do we need to know about any external visitors?
Legally we are required to know about your guest
To ensure the wellbeing and welfare of all students in case of contentious or controversial subjects
The university also need to approve any online event guest speakers.
Fill in external speaker/visitor form at least 3 weeks before the event.
This gives us time to go to the university on your behalf and for the university to decide on approval.
