Drive change at Herts!


The Students’ Union Elections are one of the most vibrant and exciting times of the academic year. Run annually, this is where you can put yourself fowards for one of our Elected Officer roles and when students are invited to vote on their favourite candidates. Elected Officers are here to represent you on all areas of student life, making the Uni of Herts the best it can be. They use student feedback to drive change and ensure all students love life at Herts. We've made some big changes to the Elected Officer model for the 2023-24 academic year. With ten roles up for grabs, we're making it easier to be part of the team at the top. Elected Officer are paid positions are all paid and you have the choice of running for a full-time role or a part-time role. Make sure you're part of the change. Be sure to get involved and have your say!


Thank you to the 5,129 students that submitted an enormous 21,337 votes between you and well done to all the candidates for a very competitive few days of campaigning!
