The Students' Union is the recognised representative body for all Canterbury Christ Church University students and we run elections annually to elect the full-time Sabbatical Officers. We are here for students, raising issues, representing, challenging and ensuring that the student voice is front and centre in any decision that is made at CCCU.
Are you passionate about ensuring students voices are represented, not only locally but nationally too?
Here are the dates for the 2021 Elections which will see the winners take office in July 2021. The year-long roles are full-time and paid with students either taking a break in their studies or in the year after graduating. We'll be publishing more information in the near future with regards to role descriptions, faqs, etc but in the meantime here are the dates for the elections.
