About TUSU Elections

Teesside University Students' Union (TUSU) is led by by students for students and every year any current student* can stand in our elections to find the next three Student Officers and next four NUS National Conference Representatives. These are unique opportunities to make a real difference for all Teesside University students and build your own skills and experience at the same time.
