Election process

The University Secretariat conducts student elections for the Academic Board annually. A notice of election will be posted on the University Noticeboard to notify students of the election.

The nomination form will be made available for download from this page from the date of nominations opening.

If at the close of nominations there are an equal number or fewer nominees than positions available, the nominees will be declared elected unopposed. If more nominees are received than positions available in any election, that election will proceed to a ballot. If there are insufficient nominees to fill available places the nominees will be declared elected unopposed and the Chair of the Academic Board, after consultation with the relevant Deans, may nominate students from the relevant faculties to fill vacant positions.
