Teesside University Students’ Union 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 as well as the 4 leaders of the SU and 6 representatives at the NUS Annual Conference.
Student Leaders 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, 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 when the big issues facing students and the future direction of NUS are being debated and voted on.
