Student Elections

Your students' union elections

Your Students' Union is a student-led democractic organisation, but what does this mean? Well it means that we are here for you, our members, and you have an active say on what we do for you. To do this, we have loads of roles that you can undertake alongside your studies, from being a club/society committee member, student representative or one of your part-time or full-time officers. To ensure that this is done in the most democractic way possible, you have a say on who will take up these roles in Leadership Races we run throughout the year.

Current leadership races

There are a number of Leadership Races we run throughout the year so that we can choose the best time for you to elect you different leaders. We have split these into three areas which include:

  • Students' Union: is where you will find elections for your Full-time and Part-time Officers, NUS Delegates and any other election that is not for Activities or Student Reps.
  • Student Rep: is where you will find elections for any of your Student Representative roles for the Student Representation System.
  • Activities: is where you will find elections for any club/society committee roles or roles involved with the Student Activities department.
