Sabbatical Officer Elections

AUSA Student elections explained

AUSA is led by five elected students, known as sabbatical officers.  These officers are full-time, paid representatives of the Student Body.

These officers work together as a team, each focusing on their individual remit.  A candidate's manifesto will determine the way in which they work whilst in office. Sabbaticals will collaborate on issues aiming to make positive change at University, local and national level.

As the role is a full-time, paid position, students take a sabbatical year from their study in order to take up their post. You can also stand for election in your last year of study and take up the role upon graduation.
