I’m really excited to be able to release the dates for these elections – they’re the best opportunity for students to get involved in running their Union every year and we’re looking forward to the 2014 elections being bigger and better than before.
This year, we’re also focusing on students from under-represented backgrounds and trying to push how easy it is to run – there will be lots more information about this soon.”
There are over 70 positions available to run for in this election comprising of seven full-time (sabbatical) positions and 63 part-time positions – Student Leaders, student trustees and Union Councillors.
