Elections

Led by you…

Students lead in all aspects of the Students’ Union. Each year we use democratic elections to help decide who should speak and work for you on a range of issues while you’re a student at Aberystwyth University, including Academic Reps and Volunteer Officers.

Registered students can stand and vote in elections for any position that is relevant to them.
