Ever wondered how presidents and vice-presidents achieved their position as representatives for us, the students, as part of the Union? 

Well, they are elected and you may have heard of an election - a by-election - coming soon.

What is a by-election? Radar is here to explain everything you need to know about this year’s by-election. 

RGU Union is offering a chance for anyone to represent fellow students in a variety of ways and earn some important skills which will be notable additions for CV’s.

These roles are in fact a very good way to show some form of leadership during your time at RGU.

Plus, as a student representative or president you will get the opportunity to make a difference in numerous areas.  

All roles available have a common goal in mind: to support students during their time at RGU. RGU Union stated on its website that they have numerous part-time voluntary roles available. 

These roles include: 

  • Vice President (Welfare) 

  • Vice President (Community) 

  • Students’ Union Trustee 

  • Postgraduate Student Representative 

  • Undergraduate Student Representative 

RGU Union will have a by-election information pack and it details what these roles entail - allowing you to decide whether you are suitable for the role or not.

The pack will also explain how to plan a campaign which is useful if you have never done something like this before. 

Nominations for the roles are already open and will close on the 7th November at 2pm.

Once you have submitted your nomination, you can begin to campaign against other nominees. 

This gives you the platform to explain why you would be best for the role and what your plans are for the season.

Once that’s finished, voting will open on the 11th of November and it closes on the 14th of November at 2pm. 

Finally, after all votes have been counted and verified, the election results will be announced. 

What is recommended is that you have a look online at the election regulations and the election complaints form.

This will inform you of the rules you must abide by during the election period. 

So, if you believe that you can be the next person to make a difference at RGU, why don’t you put your name forward for a leadership role and see what positive changes you can make?

Energy price increase set for the UK

Consumer regulator Ofgem has announced that the price cap on energy will increase on 1 April 2021 due to rising wholesale costs and growth in demand.

This means that a typical household on a default energy tariff could expect a bill increase of £96 per year.

This could affect around 11 million homes in England, Wales, and Scotland (Northern Ireland sets its own cap).

The cap for prepayment meter customers will increase by £87 per year, affecting around 4 million households.
