Voting has now closed in Autumn Elections. This is the first election of the year, when the entire student body chooses Undergraduate and Postgraduate course representatives and other positions that are crucial to a great student experience at Imperial. We’re electing our Academic Reps and Wellbeing Reps, as well as Representatives to Council (Council Reps), Constituent Union Committee Leaders, the Committees of our Clubs, Societies & Projects and three entirely new positions in our Liberation and Community Networks. These roles are critical to the student experience and allow us to take charge of our Imperial experience as students.

About Autumn Elections

Imperial College Union exists to empower students to speak up for themselves and change the world around them - let's start with the student experience. We have the power to shape our learning, access the support we need to thrive, defend the interests of under-represented student communities, build our Constituent Unions and ensure we are as democratic as possible at the highest levels of decision-making. Autumn Elections are our annual opportunity to elect the Reps who will lead the charge in those areas. Some roles are paid and are a full time commitment, while others can be done while studying. There will be training and support for all candidates as well as those who are successful.
