Applications are now open!

At City Students’ Union, we’re trying to build a better student community; one that is vibrant and that you are proud to be a part of. We want to empower you to be successful by providing services and support that enhances your experience at City and beyond.

Our elections run each year so students can decide who will represent them and improve their union by asking the questions that matter and making change happen.

As you’ll be aware, our democratic structures have changed – if you’re still new to the changes, you can find out more here – and this year there will only be two elected roles: Students’ Union Officer (4 full-time paid officer roles) and Assembly Member (33 part-time officer roles elected proportionally per school).

What do you need in order to submit your application?

To apply you must complete an application form. Here is what you must submit with your application form:

  • Your preferred name
  • A photograph of yourself
  • A 6-word slogan
  • Your three priorities
  • A 50-second video highlighting your three priorities (shot in portrait mode)

The deadline for completing an application form is Monday 7 March at 4:00pm
