What are Arts SU elections?

Arts SU is an independent, democratic organisation (charity) led by students who are elected by our 22,000 members (UAL students). In our elections, students can stand to be, and vote for, elected student leaders, some voluntary, and some paid. These representatives are your voice and act on your behalf in the Union, University and wider community fighting for you on an institutional, local and national level. It is so important for students to take part and vote in these elections so that individuals are elected who represent YOUR views. 

In the Arts SU Elections, students can elect your FULL-TIME OFFICERS and SCHOOL REPS. Full-time Officers are paid roles, which you can do after, or by taking a year out from, or your studies. The Officers steer the directions of the SU and represent all UAL students at University, College and national-level. School Reps are voluntary positions and represent student views to the University and Colleges at School level to improve the student experience on anything related to their studies.
