SU President By-Election 2021

Following the resignation of the President-elect Oxford SU is running a by-election for President. The President is a Sabbatical Officer, who take a year out of their studies, or after they've finished, for a paid full time job working for the interests of 25,000 Oxford students.

It is a job like no other. Our Sabbatical Officers get a unique view across the whole Collegiate University, work with the University leadership, participate in Senior University Committees, support student activities, run their own projects, and fight for the rights of Oxford students.

You'll find all the information you need on this page including timelines, the job description, and helpful resources. If you have further questions about the Leadership Elections drop us an email at and our team will get in touch.
