STUDENT ASSOCIATION COMMITTEE (SAC)  

BUV Student Association Committee (SAC) embarks on the mission to connect the university and our students. The SAC consists of 7 students who are voted by all BUV students to become their representatives on the student council. 

The SAC is the official representative body of the undergraduate students’ interests and concerns. Said interests and concerns are exchanged in dialogues with university administration to enforce transparency, inclusivity, and co-efficiency for the sake of the student community. The Student Association Committee is thus formed by and works for the undergraduate students at British University Vietnam under the oversight of the Student Experience Department. The Student Association Committee is an affiliate of British University Vietnam and may represent itself publicly as such. 

The Student Association Committee comprises of one (1) President, one (1) Vice President, one (1) Head of Student Academic Affairs, one (1) Head of Student Welfares, one (1) Head of Events and Activities, one (1) Head of Marketing and Communications, and one (1) Head of Finance across all British University Vietnam campus, and a reasonable number of Officers as decided by the Student Association Committee. (The officers, although they serve as volunteers and supporters and under the management of SAC, are not recognized by BUV as official members of the Student Association Committee and are not entitled to any benefits or responsibilities granted by BUV to SAC). 

Student Clubs

All clubs at BUV are initiated and run by students, which helps them stay connected with fellow students who have similar interests and feel a larger sense of community while developing their leadership and teamwork skills.
