About Elections at the SU

The Students' Union is led by students for students and ANY CURRENT STUDENT* can run in our annual elections to find the next three Student Officers and next four NUS Conference Reps, they are elected to the positions by fellow students with EVERY STUDENT* holding the right to vote in the elections as well. 

The Student Officers are paid over £20,000 per year to lead the SU for at least 12 months running campaigns, sitting on the SU Board Of Trustees, leading on big events and making sure the student voice is heard by the most senior figures at the Uni and a range of external stakeholders amongst other responsibilities.

NUS Conference Reps attend the National Union Of Students (NUS) Annual Conference for three days at the end of March 2018 (most expenses are paid by the SU) and speak up for all Teesside Uni students at debates and when key votes on NUS policy and elections for the next set of national leaders are held.

*You must be a current student at the time of voting to be eligible to stand as a candidate in the elections and there are a number of factors which may prevent you being a trustee of a registered charity like the Students' Union (previously declared bankrupt, past criminal record etc). If you are in any doubt about your eligibility please e-mail: elections@tees-su.org.uk for a confidential discussion. You must also be a current student at the time voting is open (March 2018) to be able to cast a vote in the elections.
