Student Group Elections


Could you lead your Student Group?


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