How to stand

Nominations will open on Friday 15 September at 10:00 and close on Sunday 8 October at 23:59. To nominate yourself, all you have to do is click ‘Stand’, complete the information, and submit your nomination.

To be eligible to run in the election to become a Community Officer, you must make sure you self-define in your profile. Only full members of a Community (i.e. those who self-define into individual groups) are eligible to nominate themselves and/or vote. Check out the definitions of each Community to see if you are eligible. Regardless of how you identify, you can also sign up as a member of a Community to be kept up-to-date with anything that goes on in it!

All PGR and PGT students are automatically self-defined, but still need to sign up for membership to be informed of anything the Community Officers are up to!
