The search for our next Student President of your Arden University Students' Association is about to begin as nominations open today!

Nominations open on the 11th March as Arden University begins the election process for its next Student President of the Arden Students' Association.

Serving as the representational leader of the Students’ Association, the Student President plays a fundamental role in advocating for the needs of students, championing key challenges and providing a student-focused voice in various committees and with senior colleagues.

More than just a ceremonial title, Arden’s Students' Association’s President is a full-time salaried job with the university. The role is an opportunity to share experiences from yours’ and others’ time at Arden, to provide and promote new ideas, and represent the student voice to better the student experience.

The successful candidate will also play a substantial role as the Students’ Association continues to develop their operations and services designed to meet the needs of current and future students, no matter where or how they study. 

'The Student President role is a once in a lifetime role, with no day the same,' said Sophie Harrison, Students’ Association Managing Director.

'You could be a voice for all students and champion key issues that all our Arden students face, whether that’s academically or about your wider experience. Not only will you have the experience to make positive change for others, but you will have the opportunity to develop your professional skills, to help you in your future career.'

Nominations go live from the 11th March and will be open until midnight on the 1st April. Anyone looking to put themselves forward for the role must have full student status (further info on eligibility is in the rules below). Voting will begin on the 15th April.

Nominating and voting for the Student President will take place on Unitu. All students would have received information when they enrolled, asking them to login and create an account. If you haven’t signed up yet, or you can’t find the information, email with your student details for us to help. 

Anyone nominating will have the opportunity to get involved in a number of opportunities to help them through the experience.
