The LSE Students’ Union Elections are one of the most important dates in the calendar. This is an opportunity to either nominate yourself to be the next student representative or vote for the best candidate. Your Student representatives shape the Students’ Union work, influence LSE decision making committees and impact your student experience for one whole year.
Running for a student rep position is one of the best ways to have your say on how your Students' Union is run, create change at LSE as well as being a valuable source of professional work experience.
The 2020 Lent Term Elections are now officially over. Thank you to all our candidates, campaigners and voters for their dedication and support over this time - student representation matters - yesterday, today, tomorrow.
