Arts SU Elections 2024

Arts Students' Union is an independent democratic organisation (charity) led by our 22,000 members through our elections and referendums. Every UAL student has the right to participate and vote in our elections to determine who represents them and what direction the organisation takes through the priorities of its elected leaders. Your Students’ Union holds annual elections to allow you to choose your student leaders for the next academic year. There are six Full-Time Elected Officers (also Sabbatical Trustees) who will work on a full-time basis, taking a break from their studies or immediately after graduation and twenty-four Part-Time School Representatives who will work on a voluntary basis alongside their ongoing studies.

19 posts are up for election.

Nominations are now closed.

The polls open at 10:00 on Monday 4 March 2024 (in 44 hours)

How to stand for election

To stand you need to be logged into your Arts SU website account, which you can do by clicking 'Log in' in the top left-hand corner.

You then need to submit your details on the standing form, ensuring your name and email address is correct so that we can contact you about your candidacy.

Once you have clicked “Stand” and submitted your nomination, the page will update and state that you are now standing for your selected position. You will have the opportunity to complete/upload your candidate publicity, slogan and photo.

If you need any support with putting yourself forward, please email democracy@su.arts.ac.uk.

If you feel like standing in this election isn't for you, but you know someone who might be great at a role, you can give them a bit of encouragement to put themself forward by completing our Suggest a Student form.

After you suggest them, we will send them an email letting them know that someone thinks they should stand (don't worry, you do have the option to remain anonymous). This could give someone the encouragement they need!
