Each Spring, Student Elections are held to elect students who will run Leeds Arts Union for the year ahead.


This exciting event sees students from across the University campaign for roles on the Union team. These students play an important part in improving Leeds Arts University. Every student at the University is given a vote and the successfully elected team take on objectives and ideas put by students.

Have a look below at your 2019 - 2020 Student Executive Officers, and send us an e-mail if you have any questions!
