Before completing this form, all candidates are asked to note the general eligibility requirements which apply to all committee members, as set out in Council Regulations 14 of 2002 Current members seeking re-election are also asked to check with the committee secretary as to their eligibility with respect to any specific restrictions on consecutive service.

It is recommended that you complete the form as a word document (including the names of your nominators, where known), and send the draft document as an email attachment to for advance checking. (Early submissions of drafts will benefit from early notification of any validation issues encountered: later submissions can only be checked as time permits.) If you prefer to complete this form by hand, please print legibly, preferably in block capitals, as illegible forms cannot be processed.

Please note: the official nomination requires the original signatures of both the candidate and at least four nominators. This means you must submit a completed, signed, paper copy of this form prior to the deadline as noted above. Photocopies, faxes, or electronic signatures will not be accepted.

Each candidate for election is invited to submit a written statement, of no more than 250 words, setting out his or her reasons for standing and qualifications for the office being sought. In the event of a contested election, these statements will be published both on-line and in the Gazette. The Registrar shall be responsible for ensuring that the length of such statements does not exceed the stipulated 250 words, and in the event that they do, or of any other questions arising about the content of such statements, shall refer to the Vice-Chancellor and Proctors for a determination of how to proceed. To meet publication deadlines, statements must be submitted to the Elections Office before the relevant closing date of nominations.
