Are you interested in getting involved at SUSU but don’t know where to start? Now’s your chance!


We have ten places on Union Council up for grabs at our next meeting on Tuesday. No matter how experienced you are (or aren’t), this is the perfect opportunity to get more involved with what we’re up to and get your voice heard.


Open Place Union Councillors are students who sit on Union Council and are elected at-large from the student body, and sit alongside the other 30 Union Councillors, who are elected to reflect the various backgrounds of the student body, such as students from particular faculties, international students, mature students etc.


Being an Open Place Union Councillor is a great way to get a taste of what SUSU is and does, and you get to vote on the issues which effect students on a regular basis – so your voice really does count. There are no qualifications – any student can stand and get elected.


If you or anyone you know might be interested in standing it’s super easy – there’s no signup process necessary, you just have to come along to the start of the meeting (which is at 6pm in Building 37 – follow the signs from the main doors) and give a one-minute speech. That’s it!


If you’ve got any questions about the role or what you need to do to stand, please email the Democracy Team via democracy@susu.org.
