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 or Chair positions which you take on alongside your studies.
