Graduate Student Association elections

Posted on 5 June 2017

Postgraduate students: vote now to choose who will represent you for the next academic year.

Graduate Student Association Summer Elections 2017. Voting is now open for the GSA elections. 9am 5 June to to 5pm 9 June. Postgraduate students: choose your voice.

The General Election will be dominating the headlines this week, but don't forget to have your say in about who represents you here at the University as well.

The Graduate Student Associate (GSA) is holding their summer elections from 9am on Monday 5 June to 5pm on Friday 9 June. If you are a postgraduate student, you should receive an email into your University email account with a link to the voting website and information on how to vote. You can also go directly to the website and log in with your student number.

You will be asked to rank the candidate in order of preference, with number one as the person you would most link to win.

By voting in the GSA elections you get a voice in who represents you and your needs to the University. York is one of the few universities in the UK to have a Graduate Student Association, and those who lead the association can make a real difference to graduate student life.
