What is the Candidate Academy?

Thinking about running but not sure what it means or what to do? At Candidate Academy you’ll hear about the elections process, what you can run for, and some top tips for campaigning and writing your manifesto. Open to all students.

In the session we’ll cover:

  • What roles we’re electing and what each officer does
  • The elections process and timescales
  • Key issues for Lancaster students so candidates can make the biggest impact with their pledges
  • Writing a manifesto and nominating yourself
  • Top tips for campaigning and getting students to vote for you

What is Hustings?

Your chance to watch democracy in action! Hear from this year's candidates for Full Time Officers, listen to their big ideas, watch them debate, and ask your own questions.
