Union Council


Representing you, and shining a light on the issues that matter


Who can run for Union Council?

Simply, any student. No matter whether you're on a year abroad or a year in industry; whether you're a part-time student or a distance learner; whether you live on or off campus, you can take part. Union Council is fully interactive. It's streamed live so you don't need to miss a thing.

You can give speeches live via video call and even vote from the other side of the world.

What next?

If you're interested then nominations for the elections will commence at the beginning of the academic year and we will be looking for two Lead Union Reps per department.

Part-Time Officers

Crucial to the future development of the Union their key responsibility is making sure the group they represent receives the support and services they require. They seek to improve the overall experience students have whilst at the University of Leicester. In October we will be looking for a Postgraduate Officer and a Trans Officer to join the team, nominations for these positions will open at the start of the academic year. .
