Student Part-Time Elections 2021: Meet Your Candidates



We are a democracy 

This means that you elect the students who lead the SU and represent you, we are student-led through strong democratic structures and firmly believe in the principle and power of democracy. 

The Students' Union is not just a physical space, it's you and everyone around you. We work to empower you to make positive change in your community, be it locally, nationally, or internationally. When you’re a student here at the University of Plymouth, you're instantly a member of your Students' Union, and that means you have a role in the decisions that affect you. 

As a member, you're a part of our 'democratic structures'. We hold forums and meetings for you and other students to come together, discuss ideas, and work with your Sabbatical Officers to create positive change.  
 


  

Voting is now open until midday on Friday 22nd October! If you want to find out more about how to vote, the ATV system or who RON is then check out our How to Vote page.
