No elections are currently running


Speak up for students and lead your Students’ Union!

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.

These pages contain information on our elections process and we hope they are helpful to you.  We’d also love to hear from you if you might be interested in leading the Students’ Union. 

These are amazing opportunities and you can always come to see us about them in the Students’ Union on any Northumbria campus, by emailing any questions to or come to one of the Lead Your Union information sessions.

Nominations for Sabbatical, Student Executive and NUS Conference open on 9th December. Nominations close Friday 7th February 2019, 12pm.

You can only run for one position, except for NUS delegate where you can run for that and another position. If you nominate yourself for more than one sabbatical or student council position, you will not be allowed to run until you decide.
