We are run by both students and full-time staff and are headed up by four full time elected officers. For 2023/24 these are:


President - Chike Dike
VP Student Opportunities - Holly Tyack
VP Education - Norah Valerie Deka
VP Welfare & Community - Fatima Farha

These officers were elected by the students of BU in our annual elections. Their sole purpose is to represent the best interests of the student body. They work on a personal, local and national level to promote Bournemouth students, and hold the university to account on issues that directly affect students.
