Athletic Union President

The AU President is a full-time elected sabbatical officer who dedicates a year away from studies for the development of university Sport. As part of the wider Sabbatical Team representing the student voice, the AU President works closely with the four elected Students' Association Officers (Students' Association President, the Director of Representation, the Director of Student Development and Activities, and the Director of Events and Services), to help shape the student experience here in St Andrews. 

Athletic Union Executive Committee

The Exec currently has five student members on part-time internship roles, each with their own distinct areas of operation, but who as a group come together to help shape the future of student sport at St Andrews. All matriculated students of the University of St Andrews who have completed at least one year’s involvement with the Athletic Union (normally on a club committee) are eligible to apply for a position on the AU Exec.
