October Bye Elections 2019

Want to get involved with the SU running campaigns and representing students?

We are now electing student officers to be a full member of Student Council!

Student Council is the primary representative forum of the Students' Union. It creates policy which directs the focus of the elected officers. Members discuss and vote on items (motions) submitted by students. Any items (motions) that pass become active SU policy for three years. Do you have what it takes to represent students on Student Council and on University Committees?

More information on Student Council can be found by CLICKING HERE

Our Constitution and Bye Laws (the official documents that govern student council) can be found by CLICKING HERE

As well as the positions below, we also have a number of NUS National Conference (Wales and UK) positions available. 

NUS Delegates represent our SU at a national level. This is an amazing opportunity to influence the national student movement by voting on motions at national conferences as well as electing NUS Officers who work full time, campaigning on the issues that you’ll vote on at conference. These events are a good way to get to know more about Nus and how you can get involved in their work. Elected delegates will receive free transport and accommodation and will be supported throughout the conferences by the WGSU President. If you are running for a delegate position, please ensure that you are available on the following dates: 

 

Nus Wales Conference – Wednesday 26th and Thursday 27th February 2020. Location TBC

NUS UK Conference – Tuesday 31st March – Thursday 2nd April 2020 @ Liverpool Arena.
