Election Eligibility Criteria

Who can run in the Elections?

Any student currently matriculated at Edinburgh Napier University, who is actively pursuing their studies towards a qualification (as confirmed by Edinburgh Napier University), is eligible to stand for office.

If you are not currently in your final year of study, you must be able to suspend their studies for a year to take up the post next session.

Please note that a student can only run for one position and cannot submit multiple nominations.

Status Check

All candidates must be eligible to be a charitable trustee (18 years old (+), not an undischarged bankrupt or prohibited from being a company director – see the OSCR website for more information) and sign a declaration to that effect.

All elected officers may be subject to status checks through disclosure Scotland or another appropriate organisation to ensure that they are eligible.
