Be the voice of students.

The Students’ Union Elections are your chance to be the voice of students. Each year, we run elections so students can decide who represents them. There are over 60 positions you could nominate yourself for including full-time paid positions and part-time voluntary positions. If you’re elected, you’ll be the voice of the students you represent, help to improve the Queen Mary experience, set the direction of the Students’ Union, decide on student policy and help to run campaigns and projects to improve students’ lives.

Why run?

This is your chance to be the voice of students, improve the experience of students at Queen Mary, develop new skills and become more employable.


Who can run?

Any student studying a course at Queen Mary University of London can run, including postgraduate students, international students and part-time students. If an executive officer’s academic term doesn’t end in July (for example if a postgraduate student’s term ends in September), we’ll work with them and their school to make sure they can represent students while completing their course.

If an Executive Officer is an international student, the University will act as their sponsor so they can be employed in the UK. For more information contact su-elections@qmul.ac.uk.
