Election process

The University Secretariat conducts student elections for the Academic Board annually. A notice of election will be posted on the University Noticeboard to notify students of the election.

If at the close of nominations there are an equal number or fewer nominees than positions available, the nominees will be declared elected unopposed. If more nominees are received than positions available in any election, that election will proceed to a ballot.
