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.

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

It’s an exciting time at Aberystwyth Students’ Union whether as a Full-time Officer, Volunteer Officer, Institute Representative or Student Trustee you have the chance to join us on our journey.

Meet your current Full-time Officers and Volunteer Officers by clicking on the relevant link.

If you or someone you know has ideas to make student life better consider standing. Full-time Officers receive a salary of £17.5k and excellent package including 28 days leave for the year starting in July 2018.
