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.

Students' Council and School Presidents

We will be electing the Representative of Students with Disabilities who sits on Students' Council , as well as School Presidents in Art, Design and Fashion; Journalism, Language and Communications; and Health Sciences. The role descriptions can be found on the side bar to this page.

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 May 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.
