Here at Your Union we hold all sorts of elections for student representatives at all levels, so you can get involved in UWS life and decision making! Read on to find out more!

Big Elections 2023 - Be part of leading Your Union!

The elections for the Union's full-time officer positions are now open. Every year, UWS Union elects a team of students who take a year out of their studies to work as full-time representatives of the Student Body. Traditionally, we called these students "Sabbatical Officers" because they had to take a year out (a sabbatical) of their studies. We have four paid positions for students to stand for. They are:

  • President
  • Vice-President Education
  • Vice-President Student Development
  • Vice-President Welfare and Wellbeing

Each of the full-time sabbatical roles pays an annual salary of £21,630. In addition to these full time paid positions, we have a number of volutary positions, including Union Chair and School Board Reps. 

If you think you have what it takes to be on of our officers, please read on and nominate yourself below! 

The Big Elections are here!  This is your opportunity to help lead the UWS Students Union and make the student experience here at UWS the very best!  

All you need is a passion for students and UWS, drive to create change and an idea of what you'd like to change!  If you have those three key ingredients then you could be part of the new Sabbatical Officer Team, School Officer Team or you could even be the next Union Chair!
