The Students’ Union is led by a team of five sabbatical officers who are elected from across the student body. Their role is key in ensuring the work we do is 100% student focused and each role helps to shape the strategic direction of the organisation, influence University policy and act as a trustee of the Students’ Union.
Alongside the Sabbatical Officers we also elect Student Trustees to sit on the Union’s Board of Trustees, a College Council Representative and NUS Delegates who represent the University at a national level.
