Students' Union Elections

There are currently no elections running

The Students' Union election took place between 23rd - 27th March 2020 online. Here are the results!



Information on Students' Union elections

Our elections run in a similar way to the UK's General Election.

  • Each year, current students (all students are automatically members of the Students' Union) vote for representatives called Officers.

  • Any current student can put themselves forward as a candidate (nominate themselves) and their application is then supported by their peers. 

  • All students are asked to vote for which candidates they would best like to represent them, based on their manifesto (plan of action).

  • Students vote online by ranking the candidates in order of preference. 

  • Voting happens during Election Week

  • We use the Single Transferable Vote (STV) system to calculate the winner.
