Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply for a position in a Committee Election?
Go to www.guildofstudents.com/elections between 10am on Wednesday 17th March and 4pm Sunday 21st March. You must be logged in!
Then select the Committee Role you’re interested in and follow the instructions.
I can’t see the committee role I want to stand for - why is this?
First, make sure you’re logged in. You also need to make sure that you have bought a membership for the group you’re looking for. If you haven’t done this already, you can buy this online via the Guild website.
If you’ve done all of this and you still can’t stand, email email@example.com
How can I find out more about a committee role?
You should contact the Student Group, Association, Volunteering Group or MedSoc Group directly to find out more.
Can I stand for more than 1 committee role in the same Student Group?
Yes, if you want to nominate yourself for more than one role, you can do so. If you win more than one election, we’ll get in touch after voting has closed so you can choose which role to take up.
Remember, you must submit your applications for any role you’re interested in before 4pm on Sunday 21st March. We cannot accept any applications after this time.
Can I share a committee role with my friend (e.g. stand together as social sec)?
Yes, as long as your Student Group allows committee members to share a role. You should check with them before nominating yourself.
Please note: you cannot role share a President, Secretary or Treasurer role.
In this case, only one of you should log in and submit your application. However, you should put both of your names in the “Display Name” box and email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm that you are standing together.
