Union Elections

UWLSU is run by students for students. Every year, we have elections to determine which students lead the Students’ Union.

Election Documents 

Take a look at the Election Documents below: 

The roles

Full-time officers

Every spring, we run elections where students vote for the full-time sabbatical officers – President, VP Education and VP Student Activities and Participation. These are the people who decide what the Students’ Union does on your behalf. They work full-time to make changes that improve your education and overall university experience.

Part-time roles

In autumn every year you elect students to represent UWL at the National Union of Students National Conference. These positions are called NUS Delegate. This autumn we are also electing a Student Trustee to sit on our most powerful committee, the Trustee Board.

Nominations

As a UWL student you can nominate yourself for these positions, so if you’re passionate about improving life here at UWL then get involved. As a Sabbatical officer you will represent and lead the interests of over 10,000 students.

Voting

You will have the opportunity to have your say on who will represent you. Voting is really simple. You can vote online (on this website) or on campus and it only takes 5 minutes. You can vote in preference order, so if your favourite candidate doesn't get enough votes, then your vote moves to your second choice. 

Make sure to vote so that you can make a great impact to your university experience. Read the candidates manifesto in order to ensure you made the right choice.
