GSA Elections

Here at the GSA, Representation and Democracy is at the heart of what we do. We have been representing postgraduate students at the University of York for over 55 years and we are excited to this year be growing our representation of students.

For the first time, we have a brand new system of representation for our purely online students (courses that are intended to be online and not online because of the pandemic). This is something that hasn’t been done before here at York and the GSA are thrilled to be starting this. Therefore in our January elections, we have department and programme representative roles for all online courses.

In addition, we are holding elections for those whose courses are starting in January in order to ensure they too are properly represented here at York. With the global pandemic, we know that course starts have varied this year so the GSA want to be as inclusive and aware of this as possible.
