ELECTIONS

Brighton Students’ Union is a student led organisation, each year we elect a Student Leadership Team made up of paid and volunteer officers to help run the Union and ensure that the work we do is in the best interests of the entire student body.

 

We hold two sets of elections each year, the main Student Leadership Team Elections are held in the Spring Term and we hold an election for any unfilled positions and NUS Conference Delegates in the Autumn term.

Anyone who is a current student on any University of Brighton course can stand; this includes all part time, postgraduate, international students and some students studying University of Brighton degrees at partner colleges.

If you would like more information about stand in the elections contact Tom Foy, Student Voice Manager at t.foy@brighton.ac.uk.
