Are you a student leader? Our annual Student Election contains a number of full-time and part-time roles which allow you to represent students at different levels across the Union and University structures, and allow you to make a real difference to student life at RGU!

These roles include Student President and Vice President roles where you play a key role in leading the students' union and working with the university to improve student experience. It is a great opportunity to improve the lives of students at RGU but also to develop your own skills and enhance your CV.

Student President roles are full-time, paid positions for students who are either graduating this year or want to take a year out from their studies to represent RGU students. Vice President roles are voluntary and allow you to build your skills and work on campaigns that matter to you while you study.

Read through these pages to find out more about each of the elected roles available, and if you have any further questions, talk to our team! We'll be more than happy to help.
