2017 Academic Board Elections

In 2017 all of the Academic Board elections will be run simultaneously. Candidates may stand in multiple categories but may only hold one position. The order in which candidates will be elected will be: Chair of Academic Board, Deputy Chair of Academic Board, Higher Education and Faculty/College positions.

The Academic Board elections will, therefore, use the Approval Voting method. This means that you may lodge a vote for any candidate you feel is suitable for the position. You may lodge a vote for one, some or all candidates in each category that you vote in. Voting for more than one candidate is not compulsory.

For a more detailed explanation please refer to the 2017 Academic Board Voting Method
