Do you care about the student's voice? Do you have a passion for representation and for your Students' Union? Then stand for election to be one of our Students' Union President/Vice President or SU Executive! or engage and vote in our elections every March!

Every year we ask students to stand and vote for who you want to represent you as full-time President and Vice President as well as our part-time representatives. These elected students will then work on issues that affect students, gather and respond to your feedback and overall try and bring about positive changes at HA!

You can nominate yourself for election and we definitely recommend doing so if you are interested. Elections week in March is always great fun and an amazing experience, and these roles are a great opportunity to develop your leadership and communication skills. 

If you aren't elected this year, you can always run again! or there are lots of opportunities for you to have your say throughout the year, such as becoming a Course Rep, joining a committee, submitting an idea, or event taking part in student feedback surveys. 


Lead your Union. Campaign on the issues that matter to you. Represent the interests of 4,000 students.
