Student Group Elections


Have you got what it takes to lead your student group?

All 250+ of our student groups are lead by a dedicated team of student volunteers that form the Committee. The work of Committee members is crucial to the running of the group and creation of a positive student experience for members. By being on Committee you will also gain great skills and experiences to make you stand out in your time at Leicester and beyond!
