You decide who leads your SU.

Each year, five Exec Officers and a team of Campaign Officers are elected into office. Together they direct and shape your Students’ Union. They make lasting changes to improve the lives of students. They make sure the student voice is heard at the highest level. 

The Elected Officers will act and speak on your behalf for the whole of the academic year. By voting, you’re making sure the right people are picked to make your voice heard at the highest level.
