Spring Elections 2018

KCLSU is a democratic charity led by students. Our elected student leaders work to ensure a wide cross-section of views are represented in decision making within the Union and at King’s and help to unite the various student communities around common causes.

The Spring Elections sees King’s students stand and vote for the Student Officer, Association Officer, NUS Delegate and Academic Rep positions. These leaders work within their respective roles, groups and as a collective to make a real impact on their communities.
