Each year students elect the people that they want to see run their students’ union. The winning candidates are then responsible for:
- Running campaigns to improve the experience of students
- Lobbying the university on key issues that affect students
- Deciding how DSU spends it's money
- Leading the Students’ Union
Who can run in the elections?
Any De Montfort University student can run in the elections!
Students who have put themselves forward to run for one of the full-time positions are either in their final year of their degree or will pause their degree if they are successful.
Candidates for the part-time positions will be continuing their studies next year and will undertake the part time role alongside your studies.
