Student Leader Elections: Nominate yourself

Have you got what it takes to make change? Be a leader, not a follower, and put yourself forward for the Student Leader Elections. Nominations are now open!

Who should stand?

Anyone can stand for election – you’ve just got to nominate yourself. But before you do, ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I passionate about having a positive impact on the lives of my fellow students?
  • Have I got big ideas to make a big difference to my Students’ Union?
  • Do I want to make change?

If you answer ‘yes’, get your name down.
