It was a successful week at AberSU last week; winning the NUS Wales Higher Education Students’ Union of the year award, winning the Student Opportunities Award and runner up officer team of the year at the same awards on Tuesday evening but to finish off a great week, the AberSU Elections also broke an Aberystwyth record.

A total number of 2,290 votes were cast in this week’s Election giving the AberSU Elections a turnout of 28%.

Thanks to all Aberystwyth students who voted in this year’s officer Elections.

Congratulations to all candidates that stood in this year’s Aber Elections and welcome to the AberSU team to all the newly elected officers who will take up their posts over the summer.
