Elections

Each year, we hold elections for students to vote on who they’d like to see lead the Students’ Union. In March, you elected next year's Full-Time Elected Officers, Students' Council, School Presidents and other reps, but there are still positions available to ensure full student representation next year.

We hold By-Elections to fill any gaps for the positions which didn't get filled in the main election. For this By-Election, there are roles available for Sports Club and Societies Committees, the Representative of Post Graduate Students which sits on Students' Council, Post Graduate Research Reps for a number of schools and an extra School President role for each school.

Check out the available roles below, nominate today and you could be representing others while you develop yourself next year.
