The Election 2020

 

Every September we hold an election for the next round of Student Reps and we want YOU.

 

This year we have made some really exciting changes. Wave goodbye to the role of Course Rep and say hello to the new roles of Class Reps and Course Champions!

In simple terms, these roles are designed for two key purposes;

 

1. To ensure ARU London University listen to and act upon

any feedback you have as a student

2. To give excellent development opportunities for students within these roles

 

Anyone can stand to be a Class Rep or Course Champion, all you need to do is decide which one you would like to do. Once you've nominated yourself, your fellow class and course mates will vote for who they would like to represent them. 

 

 

This year you will be nominating yourself for one of these positions through your VLE.
