.Representation

We are currently holding our Spring Elections 2019 to elect Sabbatical Officers and many of our Student Officer roles.

Sabbatical Officers are elected to be full-time, paid members of the Union team. They lead areas of the Union’s work and represent all students at the highest levels both at the University and in the Union.

Student Officers are elected to carry out voluntary roles at the Union alongside their studies. This can range from leading a student media group, to being an officer for a specific group of students depending on their faculty, campus and more.
