What are the Elections?

 

These are opportunities for students to become representatives of their peers and take on a leadership role to continually improve the university and student experience. You can nominate yourself and say why you would be great in the role.  


Why do they matter?


It is essential for your students' union to be led by elected representatives and ensure that it is working in the interests of the Student Body. Therefore, Students' Union policy and accountability are in the hands of elected students. 
 

What roles are there?


Course Representative: Act as the voice for your cohort and a point of contact to raise course wide issues or praise. You will attend Course Committees (3 a year), Student Councils (6 a year), and Officer Drop-ins (once a month) 


 

I can't nominate myself/vote for a position I think I should be able to

 

If you're struggling to vote, first thing is to make sure you're logged into the website with your student ID.

Next, is to make sure you're nominating for the right course or group - joint honours students can only participate in the election for the first course in their title (i.e. Psychology and Law can only vote for Psychology course rep). Those on sandwhich year and professional placements will vote for the same rep as coursemates who are not. 

If you've checked all this but still can't vote, drop su.democracy@uos.ac.uk an email and we'll make sure to sort things out for!
