Union Elections

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

Sabbatical Officers 

At the top of UWLSU, sit our Sabbatical Officers, who work to make changes and build an SU that represents our diverse body of students and gives them the best opportunities. Every year, every student at UWL has the chance to vote for who they want to represent them – you also have the chance to run, if it’s something you’re interested in!

NUS Delegates 

Every autumn, students are elected to represent UWL at the 'National Union of Students' National Conference – these are NUS Delegates. 

Have a look at the candidates' manifestos that will be representing you here.

You will have the opportunity to have your say on who will represent you in Sabbatical Officer Elections and NUS Delegate Elections. Voting is really simple. You can vote online (on this website) or on campus and it only takes 5 minutes. You will vote in preference order, so your 1st choice, then 2nd, then 3rd, etc. 

Make sure to vote so that your views are represented, and your uni experience is the best it can be. Read the candidates' manifestos to make sure you make the right choice. 

Our elections are for UWL students only.

We use the Single Transferrable Vote (STV) system.

If you have any queries or complaints about the elections, you can contact the UWLSU team at
