Candidate Academy


Our Candidates Academy is your chance to find out all you need and want to know about the different full-time and part-time officer roles and how they fit into and lead the Students’ Union more generally, learn all the key dates and facts about the elections, and pose your question to current officers and experienced support staff.


All Aberystwyth University students are welcome to come along to Candidates Academy – you don’t need to have any prior knowledge of the positions, elections, or even the Students’ Union and there’s no commitment to nominating yourself as a candidate by attending.


Candidate Academy will be taking place at 2pm on Tuesday 6th, 13th and 20th February as well as 2pm on Wednesday 14th and 21st February in the Students’ Union Committee Room.
