FAQs

What roles are be nominated for in this set of elections?

You’re on the page for the Student Leader Elections. As nominations were completed for the other Officer roles during our third elections period, we are only opening nominations between Monday 30 March to Wednesday 8 April for:

  • Union Development Officer
  • Welfare and Wellbeing Officer
  • Liberation Officer
  • LGBT+ Officer (by-election)
  • What roles are being voted for in this set of elections?

    The entire Full-Time and Part-Time Officer team is up to vote between 9am on Monday 4 May to 3pm on Monday 11 May.

    I’m confused - why have the elections been split up?

    In light of the recent escalation of the coronavirus pandemic, and following consultation with the Elections Committee, your SU made the difficult decision to postpone campaigning and voting for the Student Leader Elections in the third elections period. You can find out more about this through our relevant news article, by clicking here.

    Where do I send my manifesto for the Student Leader Elections?

    If you’re running in one of the four roles up for nominations this period, fill out this form with your manifesto information by 12 noon on Thursday 9 April. Please be advised that any nominations that don't include a manifesto submission will be rejected by the Returning Officer.

    Do you need anything else from me?
