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 officers 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.
Students' Council and School Presidents
This year we will be running Course Rep elections online for the 2017/18 academic year for new starting courses (foundation, year one and masters courses) as well as for returning year groups who did not elect a course rep last March. If you think you could be a great rep check out the role description and rules.
