Nominations open Monday 4th February 12pm


At UPSU we use democratic elections each year to choose your Sabbatical Officers, who will represent you the following year. The elections take place in February and March each year . The Elections are your opportunity to choose who represents you. Any University of Plymouth student can nominate themselves to run for a Sabbatical Officer role.

Becoming a full-time Sabbatical Officer for the next year, from June, is a great way to gain an amazing amount of experience, develop new skills, work with the highest levels of the University and lead a registered charity as one of its trustees. The roles are a great way to make positive change for University of Plymouth students.
