What is an elected Officer?
We have six elected Full-Time Officers (FTO’s) who are students elected each year by the fellow student body. The job of an FTO is to represent students when it comes to ALL things Uni-related. They make the University aware of issues important to you, run campaigns to celebrate our student's community, and fight your corner.
Basically, their mission (along with the SU in general) is to give you the best experience possible while you’re a student here in in Swansea. As well as, providing you with all the opportunities possible to succeed in what comes after you leave Swansea. So, if you have any questions, drop them a message at email@example.com
Welcomes from the FTO’s.
Here are a few personal welcomes from your FTO’s for 2022-23.
President – Esyllt Rosser
Hi everyone! My name is Es, and I am so excited to be your SU President this year. We can’t wait to welcome you here with us in Swansea! We have so much to look forward to this year - especially ‘Freshers Fortnight’ where your Students Union will be running some of the biggest and best Freshers events in the country (there really is something for everyone). There are so many ways that you can get involved with your SU throughout the fortnight, See you on Wind St!
Sports Officer – Jonny Davies
Hello, my name is Jonny and I’m the Sports Officer for 2022-23! I can’t wait to see you scoring goals, shooting hoops, running in the trials and getting active at Swansea this year. We offer roughly 56 different sports, so there will surely be something you love here at Swansea Un. It’s as easy as going on to our SU website swansea-union.co.uk and picking one! Being a fresher can be daunting, but if you try as many things as possible you are bound to find friends and an activity you’ll love. I expect to see you all at our GWA Wednesday events and Rugby 1’s matches on St. Helens grounds. Uppa Swans! #WeAreGWA
