UCLan SU Elections

Led by you!

It is important to us that everything we do is decided by you. From the Board of Trustees setting the budget to the Sports Development Committee allocating the money, decisions are made by students elected by you.

Our main elections to elect the full time Student Affairs Committee (SAC) are held in March every year ready for them to take up their roles on July 1st. At this time we also elect our Students' Council members and School Presidents. NUS Conference delegates are elected in October/November every year.

Student Affairs Committee, Students' Council and School Presidents

We will be electing the President, Education Officer, Campaigns Officer, Activities and Participation Officer and Media Officer alongside all the Students' Council roles, including School Presidents. The role descriptions can be found on the side bar to this page.


These elections are conducted with a separate set of rules and the full details can be found in the Candidate's Brochure.


Nominate yourself here.


Course Reps

This year for the second time we will be electing your course reps returning for the 2017/18 academic year. This is so we can provide training and support ahead of next year and so we don't disturb your lectures in September. If you think you could be a great rep check out the role description and rules


Clubs and Societies

Clubs and Societies will also be electing their committee roles for 2016/17. This is so we can provide a training academy in April and ensure groups have the support they require to hold events at Freshers. If you want to lead your group check out the role descriptions and rules. Nomination for these roles will open soon.
