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.

This year we ran a number of elections to determine your students leaders and representatives:


  • AberSU ran the first ever single-process Academic Representative Election
  • A record 35% of members voted in the Spring 2018 Officer Elections
  • For the first time, AberSU offered sports clubs and societies the ability to hold their elections fully online


Check out the Results of all our elections this year here, and don't forget to get involved during next years' elections!
