Future Elections

Information about upcoming elections at UWS Students' Union. Find out what roles you can stand for and vote for!

Throughout the academic year, we hold a number of different elections to make sure that student voice is at the heart of the work of our Students' Union, the work of UWS, and national student movements.

Coming up: we have the NUS Conference Delegate Elections, and the Big Elections!

NUS 2024 Conference Delegate Elections

The next elections we will be holding will be for National Union of Students (NUS) Conference Delegates. NUS is led by student sand students' unions, and each year they host different conferences to discuss the big issues facing students today.

This is a great opportunity to get involved on a one-off basis - rather than holding a role for a whole year like a course rep or school officer, this means you can get involved to attend one single event.

Big Elections

The Big Elections are when UWS students choose their new Student Presidents and their new School Officers for the following academic year. This is a big deal because Student Presidents take a break from their studies and work full time to represent you!

Student President Roles

The student president roles are paid full time jobs! You can either take on the role after your final year of study, or you can take a break from your studies to take on the role. You cannot be a student president and study at the same time! 

Nominations will open in January 2024 so keep an eye out for more information.

Volunteer Roles

If you don't want to take a break from your studies, you can take on a volunteer role while you study.
