Welcome to the
Student Elections.

The NUSU Student Elections have officially opened, and the countdown to electing your next Officer team has begun. This coming March, every student has a part to play, and that includes you, as you will have the chance to cast a vote that affects 30,000 students. But you can do more than just vote in the upcoming election, you can nominate yourself for one of the roles. Find out more here

What are the Elections?

The Students’ Union is run by students, for students – but how? Every year, we run the Student Elections which consists of students standing for a position, running a campaign to endorse themselves, and getting elected by a student vote. The elected Officers then go on to get paid to work full-time in the Students' Union for the next academic year. You can run for one of these Sabbatical "Sabb" Officer roles whether you're graduating next year, or happy to defer your studies by one year. If you are studying with us next year, you can also run for one of our voluntary Liberation Officer or Chair positions which you take on alongside your studies.
