Who can run in the Elections?

Any student currently registered 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.

The Co-President posts are full-time jobs for a 1 year term, so if you are not currently in your final year of study, you must be able to suspend your studies for a year to take up the post next session (starting in July).

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.
