Students' Union Elections 2023


Be the voice for students

The Students’ Union Elections are run each year so students can decide who represents them. There are 6 full-time paid and 70+ part-time voluntary rep positions up for grabs. Nominations are now open and it’s your chance to represent students and be their voice. Being an elected rep is a great experience. You’ll be able to improve your CV, meet new people, build new skills and for full-time roles you’ll earn £27,000+ for the year. If elected, you’ll be the voice of the students you represent, lead the Students’ Union, create change at Queen Mary and run campaigns and projects to improve students’ lives. With so many roles to choose from there is something for everyone! Find out more
