About the APRS
Founded in 2010, the goal of the Aston Postgraduate Research Society (APRS) is to improve the social and academic experiences of research students across all areas of Aston University.
All new postgraduate research students are automatically invited to join APRS when they enrol; this requires you to also be a member of the Students’ Union.
Meet the Committee
Every College has representatives who form the APRS Committee. Members of the committee meet regularly to plan and promote events. If you would like to be involved as a College rep (we're actively recruiting!), get in touch either directly with your existing College representative or via social media.

This is to elect the Student Activities Executive Committee for the academic year 2021/22.
Bye-law 7 states that Student Activities elected committee is a standing committee of Union Council. With that in mind it would be standard practice that the Student Activities Executive Committee must be approved by council.
8 posts are up for election.
Nominations close at 23:59 on Sunday 25 April 2021 (in 6 days)
The polls open at 12:00 on Monday 26 April 2021 (in 6 days)
