All your questions: Answered

What are Student Elections?

The elections are a chance for students to make a difference. Becoming an elected HISA Officer is a unique opportunity to change people’s lives for the better. UHI and the Colleges need students to make better decisions that effect every aspect of student lives. HISA officer roles are suited to people that are passionate about improving students’ experiences, initiating change and making UHI and the Colleges a better place for everyone.

Why should I get vote?

Using your vote in the Student Elections is really important, as it's your opportunity to choose who will represent you for the next year! The successful candidates will represent students on a range of issues, aiming to change your College or the University as a whole for the better. 

It’s really important that you are represented by people who will champion the issues that you believe in – and the best way to make sure the improvements you want to see take place, is by voting for someone that you believe in!

What positions will I be voting on?

There are two types of roles with HISA; Regional Officers and Local Officers (sometimes known as ‘Deputes’). Regional Officers are full-time, work on a regional level, and they can be from anywhere within UHI. Local Officers work to make things better at a specific College or institution, they are all part-time roles (apart form the Perth President) and they work while studying.
