Would you like to Lead Your Student Group? This is your chance, as you can apply for a role and steer your student group in the year ahead.

Student Group Committees are a huge and important part of any society. Each year we host elections to decide just who should sit on those committees and help to steer each student group in the year ahead.

From Secretary to Treasurer, by applying for a role or voting in the Election, you can have a big say over how your group will be run, as well as the campaigns and events your group will be focusing on, going forward.

Make sure you get involved and have your say!

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.
