Welcome to #YUSUelections
TAKE CONTROL AND CHANGE YOUR UNION
You could be a Chemistry student with fantastic ideas about how we improve representation.
You might be studying Accounting and think access to sports clubs should be much better.
You may be reading English & Related Literature and want YUSU to have stronger community links.
You Can Make Change Happen
The YUSU Elections are your chance to get your voice heard, and make real changes to students’ lives here in York.
Whatever your ideas, YUSU is here to help you if you're interested in turning them into action. In this handbook you will find information on when the elections are, why you should run, where to go if you have any questions - whether you've never thought about running before or whether you decided the second you got to York - and how you can run an effective and meaningful campaign.
Whatever you do, all current students at the University of York can stand, even if you’re away on a leave of absence or placement.
