Who can stand?
Any attending Strathclyde Student (Ordinary Member – see Constitution for more details) can run for any of these positions. You don't have to have climbed the ranks of the Students' Association or have held any previous position at all - the only qualification is that you are a Strathclyde student!
A Sabbatical position is full-time, so if you are in the middle of your degree, you will have to take a year out of your studies to fulfil the role – this will also require written permission from your Vice Dean (Academic). For the part-time, voluntary positions, you will continue studying full-time and carry out the role along side your studies.
What do I need to do?
