Student Elections

Every year we give students the opportunity to elect a group of individuals to lead the Students’ Association. All our Officers work in a range of full-time and voluntary positions for one year. Their objective is simple – to improve your time here at Borders College.

Any student has the right to stand for election. All students have the right to vote. Each year you can vote for your Students’ Association officers.

Information on how to apply for any of our elected positions can be found on our forms and resources page.
