Elections

Electing student reps at all levels is incredibly important to the work of the Union. We hold elections twice a year – once right at the start of the year to elect Student Reps and Divisional Reps, and once in the spring to elect Sabbatical Officers and School Officers for the following academic year. You can find out more about each role here.

What are the Big Elections?

These elections are when UWS students choose who will represent them in academic year 2020/2021. Students can nominate themselves for two types of position: either a full time paid role as a sabbatical officer, or a part time volunteer role conducted alongside your studies. 

 

Why should I stand as a student representative?

Any of these positions are an excellent opportunity to:

  • Make a Difference – improve UWS for your fellow students by making sure that students are heard!
  • Develop Skills – you’ll get an opportunity to attend meetings, work in partnership with university staff, and develop your skills for the workplace.
  • Get training and support – Whatever role you stand for your Students’ Union will support you to campaign, and if you’re elected your Students’ Union is here to support you in your role.
     


Why should I care about the Elections?

We believe that students should be at the heart of everything that happens at UWS – Elections make sure that the student representatives truly represent the views of students, and that the student voice is heard at every level of the university.

 

How do I nominate myself?

When elections are open you can simply log in to this election page and choose which positions to nominate yourself for. Make sure you upload a manifesto to let students know what you stand for and why they should vote for you!
