The University of St Andrews Students' Association has a strong and vibrant record of student democracy. We are the only UK students' union to have exceeded over 50% turnout in our student elections – and we've done it for two years in a row.
The next elections will be held in March 2014. For election results and information about previous elections, please consult the tabs in this section on the left-hand side.
