NSU is a democratic, student-led organisation. Every year we elect the students who lead us, and all registered Northumbria students are eligible to stand for one of our leadership roles and to vote in the elections.

Our elected opportunities provide students with a chance to make a difference to their Union and University, and to stand up for students at Northumbria. They also give incredible leadership experience and skills to boost your future career.

In 2018/19 we’ll be electing our paid Sabbatical Officers, our Student Executive and our National Union of Students Conference Delegates. Email su.democracy@northumbria.ac.uk to find out more or express your interest in standing for election.
