Arts SU Elections are not an aside to your art and design, they are your art and design.

Arts Students' Union is an independant democratic organisation (charity) led by our 17,500 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 leaders elected.

Your leaders are paid in a full-time job to represent your interests to senior UAL staff, lead Arts SU business/charity as trustees and determine the direction of the organisation in its strategic delivery. This is a extremely important responsibility betowed on those elected, therefore excercising your right to choose a student leader that represents you is crucial. 

Every UAL student can run for one of the representative positions, could that be you?
