The SU is a student led and completely democratic organisation. Students have the right to stand and vote in elections to choose lead members of clubs and societies, Chairs of key bodies like Athletic Union, Societies Federation and the Student Rep Forum.
However our biggest elections are held to choose the 4 leaders of the SU and 4 Teesside University SU representatives at the NUS Annual Conference. Every current student has the right to stand for one of these eight positions in the February of each year and every current student also has the right to vote to decide the people who hold them in March of each year.
The most recent Elections took place between 6th & 13th Mar. See the results as well as video and pictures form the elections events by scrolling down below.
Student Officers or Executive Officers as they're officially known are elected on an annual basis by current students and paid to work full-time to lead the SU on behalf of students.
The President, Education Officer, Student Activities Officer and Welfare Officer represent student opinion to the most senior figures at the University, lead various campaigns and organise key students events and activities.
NUS Conference Reps attend the single biggest annual gathering of students and students' unions ....the NUS Annual Conference....to represent the views of Teesside students.
They are part of the discussion/ debate about the big issues facing students and the future direction of NUS and they have the right to vote on various motions and policies put forward at Conference.
