AUBSU's STUDENT Opportunities 

Here's A little guide to all the activities that you can get involved in as part of Level Up:

Exec Officer Roles

Each year,  you elect a group of students to represent you - these are our Exec Officers. They make decisions for the union,  develop new initiatives and lead on campaigns,  events & activities. 

Get involved: Keep an eye out for election time in March or by-elections in Sept/Oct and nominate yourself for a position. For more info, pop into the office and chat to our Democracy Coordinator, Bethan. 



Course Reps act as the voice for all other students on their course. As a Course Rep you’ll feedback to your Course Leaders and Students' Union to help make active changes and improve the way your course operates.

Get involved: AUBSU will come and chat to your course about course-rep opportunities at the start of the year.


Club & Society Committees 

Every club and society at AUBSU has a group of dedicated students running it. They lead on all the activities and events,  thinking up loads of great ideas to put into action. 

Get involved: During April, Clubs & Socs will be holding their annual general meetings where they'll elect their new committee members. Simply turn up to this meeting (all society members will be invited!) and run for a position. Alternatively, if you start a new Club/Soc then you'll automatically be in the committee. Pick up a new club/soc proposal form from AUBSU, fill it in and return.  


Sport Activators

We have a team of Activators that help out at our weekly Give It A Go sports sessions. They get people involved and support the activities, all while enjoying the sports they love.

Get involved: We're always looking for enthusiastic activators to help with Give It A Go. Simply pop into AUBSU office and chat to our Sports Assistant, Joss, to become an activator!
