How to Nominate

Student Representative Elections

Student representatives generally serve for a period of one year from 1 January to 31 December. Should you be elected, you will need to attend meetings, read all relevant information and be prepared to share your perspective as a student.

You can nominate for a range of positions – in fact, you are encouraged to nominate for all positions you are interested in. 

You are also entitled to vote for your student leaders and representatives.  You will receive an email to your student account when ballots open for voting. You are strongly encouraged to be part of these elections by reading the Candidate Statements (outlining the Candidates’ experience and what they hope to achieve for you and your fellow students) and voting.


Nominations for this election open on Friday August 26th and close on Friday 9th September.
