Union Election 2017

Leave Your Legacy. As we celebrate turning 50, we celebrate 50 years of Student Union Elections, and 50 years of Sabbatical and Executive teams. This is your opportunity to leave your legacy at Stirling and run for a position in the 2017 Union elections. Every year you are given the opportunity, to elect from your peers, a group of individuals to lead your Students’ Union. Of those who succeed, four are paid to work full-time, and fourteen volunteer their time for one year to improve your time here at Stirling.
