Students’ Unions are membership organisations and democracy is at the heart of all they do.
Every year, hundreds of Kent, Greenwich and Christ Church students stand for election to a range of elected roles, so they can represent the views of other students and lead student groups.
What are the roles?
There are different roles for you to stand for depending on which union you belong to.
Remember, you do not have to be a final year student to run in your Leadership Elections! Whilst some candidates choose to run in their final year, candidates also have the ability to take a year out in the middle of their studies to be full time officers.
So you want to get involved… What next? For more home union specific information and to nominate yourself please click on one of the logo’s below to visit your union website. If you have been inspired by someone at uni, they could be just what we’re looking for. Perhaps you have a fantastic committee president, a committed Student Rep or just know someone with some great ideas then recommend a student and we’ll do the rest!
The Leadership Elections
The Leadership Elections recruit your Full-Time Sabbatical Officers, who are students paid by the Students Union to represent students at the highest level in the areas such as Education, Sports, Activities, Welfare, postgraduate experiences and the President of the Students Union.
