Elections 2021: 

Do you care about the student voice at UEA? Do you have a passion for representation and to create positive change? If so, then stand for election to be one of our Students' Union Officers, Convenors or Course Reps! Or engage and vote in our elections every Spring!

Every year we ask students to stand and vote for who you want to represent you as Full-Time Officers, Part-Time officers, Convenors, or Course Rep! These elected students will then work on issues that affect students, gather and respond to your feedback and overall try and bring about positive changes at UEA.

You can nominate yourself for election and we definitely recommend doing so if you are interested. Elections week is in Spring, with more specific dates given later. We will be hosting some drop in sessions shoud you need support or have any questions. It is always great fun and an amazing experience, and these roles are a great opportunity to develop your leadership and communication skills.

Elections will be fully online this year to comply with COVID-19. This means there will be no face-to-face campaigning however we are allowing the use of putting posters and banners up in allocated spaces. Candidates are encouraged to develop a strong online campaign utilising social media and the outlets we will provide.


Our full-time officer team, part-time officers and Convenors , represent you and your voice at UEA and in the wider community.  We have a few part-time officer positions, convenors and a the entire Course Rep cohort to elect. If you think you are a great candidate for these positions, nominate!
