University of Salford Students’ Union (USSU) is your Students’ Union. That means it is led by – and ran by – YOU, the students.

We hold elections each year so that you can decide who you want representing you on the issues that will impact your studies and university life. That’s why the Union elections are so important.

The student representatives you elect are known as  sabbatical officers, and they are paid to represent you to the University, the wider community, and the National Union of Students (NUS). Their job  make sure that your voices are heard by the people making decisions  affecting you as students.

Monday 3rd February (9am) – Thursday 20th February (Deadline 4pm)

Friday 7th March (9am) – Thursday 13th March (5pm)

The juicy stuff

As a sabbatical officer you will be paid over £17,000 for your year in office and will earn invaluable skills representing students to the University and being a trustee of the organisation. It truly is a once in a lifetime opportunity for Salford students.

  • Any full Salford student can stand for election.
  • International students can also run and apply for an extension on their visa!
  • The winners will either take a year out of their study to fulfil the role or carry out the role after graduation if they are in their final year.
