National Council Elections 2022-2023

National Council is the elected body of students that represent the views of students to UJS. By being elected you have the opportunity to hold the UJS President to account, and scrutinise decisions that are taken. 

To apply you need just ONE nomination from a fellow student. 

Nominations close at UJS Conference, where speeches will be given by candidates in person or pre-recorded. 

Voting then closes on Monday 13th February 2023.
