What is The Election?

The Students' Union is the recognised representative body for all core ARU students and is led by a team of students, our Executive Committee, who are elected annually. The time has come to find the new team and we're looking for candidates.

Who can stand?

All current Anglia Ruskin students are able to stand in The Election 2017, whether you're in your first or final year and there are both full-time paid and part-time voluntary positions available. Full-time positions require you to take a year out from your studies if you aren’t currently in your final year and you will receive a salary of £19,775. Part-time positions are voluntary and are designed to run alongside your studies, although you cannot be in your final year to run.

How do I get elected?

You need to submit a photo and manifesto to be eligible to stand before 22nd February 12pm. Then from 24th February you will need to campaign for students to vote for you (we will give you some resources and a budget for this), the candidate(s) with the most votes then win the election. Simple.
