About the role

Who will you choose to become the next President?


The President role is an important, fast-paced and varied job. The President chairs the Board of Trustees, works closely with senior management on Students' Union matters, meets with and lobbies senior stakeholders in the university and makes decisions that have the potential to make a difference to every single Queen Mary student.


The President also has lots of freedom to work on the issues they are passionate about – for example social and extracurricular activities for students, sustainability, fees, study spaces, housing and national education policy.
