What will happen?

In turn, each position will have approximately 15 minutes to have a discussion/debate on contentious student topics, chaired by an impartial member of Students' Union staff and live streamed. Students will have the opportunity to submit questions and challenge the candidates throughout the event.

 

How can I get involved?

We will need you to submit questions/topics that we can ask the candidates, to submit them either email ustweet us or comment on the live stream on the night. You can either watch online, or come along and watch it first hand.
