GSA Elections 2018 – Nominations open

Nominations have opened for the Graduate Students’ Associations Elections.

The Graduate Students’ Association is the main representative body for all postgraduate students studying at the University of York. It is run as a postgraduate students union with elected full time officers that work over the academic year to provide representation for postgraduate students along with a range of events and services. The GSA Elections take place every year and run throughout term 3.

This year as well as a full time president and Vice President: Wellbeing + Community, there will also be a new Vice President: Academic elected. This new position will focus on the academic aspects of postgraduate study, feeding into a variety of University meetings and committees as well as developing projects to improving the learning, teaching and research experience at the University.

On the GSA Elections, CEO of the GSA Peter Gorbert has said “Being a selected officer is a great opportunity. You get to make improvements to the student experience and gain a wide range of skills while you do it. You’ll be part of a small team making a big difference to current and future postgraduate students. Any postgraduate student can run, and we’re proud of the fact we always have a diverse group of candidates to reflect the diverse postgrad population. We hope you’ll join us and help make postgrads matter.”

Nominations are open from Monday 30 April to Friday 11 May. More information about the GSA Elections can be found at
