Brighton Students' Union is a membership organisation and you - our members - elect those who lead.
All Brighton students have a role to play in how we run. It's really important you have your say on who you want to represent your views whilst you study at the University of Brighton.
Elections happen for lots of different representative roles. You'll be able to vote in lots of elections that affect you as well as stand for different positions.
To find out more about BSU elections, contact our Engagement Team on BSUelections@brighton.ac.uk.
You can find our Elections Policy here.
Each year, our Leadership Elections are run in March. This is the biggest election on our campuses - to find the students to lead our organisation for the next academic year.
During this election, we elect the four full-time officer roles. You can find out about the current team here.
All current Brighton students can vote in our Leadership Elections. The students who get elected become trustees of BSU and represent the needs of all our members.
Nominations for the Leadership Elections open in February each year and we announce the results at the beginning of April.
Think you have what it takes to be a full-time officer? Get in touch with us to find out more.
At BSU we have over 50 active societies who have elected committee members. In March, we run elections to find the students to lead these clubs and societies the following year.
Every society is led by a committee, who help plan events, fundraise and ensure their group runs smoothly.
Committee positions are elected by the current society members and anyone in a society can stand.
It's a great opportunity to grow your skills and have greater influence over the direction of your society.
Our Society Elections run at the same times as our Leadership Elections.
