Elections

The GSA represents postgraduate students across the University of York. We are an independent student representative organisation, independent from YUSU and Student Support.

So how does it all work?

The GSA is roughly organised into four main organisational bodies. These are:

  • Board of Trustees – manages the strategic organisation of the GSA
  • Principal Officers (POs) – (President and Vice-President) represent students at all levels of the institution
  • GSA Council – supports the POs and works with the Networks to ensure diversity of representation at decision-making levels – Click here to find out about our Autumn Council elections
  • Postgraduate student Networks– these are organised and run by postgraduate students for postgraduate students, and provide a social and campaign platform for postgraduates.

Collectively these bodies work together to represent and support all postgraduates at the University of York. Each structure is explained in more detail here.
