Student Democracy

Student democracy is at the heart of what we do. Our Autumn and Spring Elections are how you decide who represents you, and helps lead us and the work we do.


Autumn Election

At the beginning of every academic year, students can nominate for a chance to fill a vacant leadership role for the current academic year, these included Student Trustee, Part-Time Officer, SU Chairperson or NUS Conference Delegate. Students will select their representatives from the list of nominees.


Spring Election

During the second semester of every academic year, students can nominate for a chance to become a Full-time Officer (Sabbs), Part-Time Officer, Student Trustee or SU Chairperson for next academic year. Students will select their representatives from the list of nominees.
