President: Miranda Black

The President is the figurehead of the Union. They are tasked with ensuring the Union is valued by students as an effective, responsive and accountable organisation.

Hiya! It’s my absolute delight to be your SU President. I’m Miranda - a lover of puns, fancy dress and anything with bread. I studied English from 2012-2015 (which flew by way too fast) and I was elected as President after a year as Vice President Welfare.

This year I want to make sure that the Students’ Union is welcoming and engaging for everyone. I’m a big fan of parody videos and anything outside of the box, so expect the unexpected! A few of my other priorities include sustainability, study space and mental health- you can find more in my ‘miranafesto’.

Please never hesitate to get in touch with anything you need this year, and I look forward to getting to know you :)


1: I embarrass myself regularly. My parody videos from elections are probably proof of that…

2: I can speak with my mouth closed. Half the people I know love it… the other half are terrified.
3: I am a big kid. My favourite things include bubble wrap, floor fountains and blanket forts.
4: I will find any opportunity I can for fancy dress. I’ve painted myself all kinds of colours, and last year convinced the other officers (including one of the guys) to recreate ‘Jingle Bell Rock’ from Mean Girls for our themed sexual health week.
5: I am currently acting as peacemaker between Sumeera and Adam (your VP Education and VP Welfare) in their war over a toy giraffe.
