SUSU’s Autumn Elections Offer Opportunities for Everyone


SUSU has announced the roles that will be available in this Autumn’s election.

This term, there are countless opportunities for your student voice to be heard as an Academic Rep or Student Officer.  Entering the Autumn Elections is the perfect way to boost your CV, get involved in the running of the uni, and improve confidence.
