It’s as simple as...

What are the main elections?

In a nutshell, it's your chance to make your voice heard while studying at Cardiff University.

It offers you a chance to change things about your university life by electing people who can best represent your views. 

The Students' Union is a democratic membership organisation. This means that every decision we make is made by you, our students at Cardiff University. The Students' Union is led by groups such as Elected Officers, Campaign Officers, Student Senate, Scrutiny Committee, and NUS delegates.

We hold elections twice each year:

  • Main Elections are held in February for Elected Officer and Campaign Officer Positions.

  • Bye-Elections are held in October for Student Senate, Scrutiny Committee and NUS Delegates
