Election Arrangements

Ordinarily the Election and Count are conducted in a defined venue on campus with all members of the electorate eligible to attend. The Chancellor and Pro-Chancellors and the candidates may also be present at the venue.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, for reasons of public health it has been decided to conduct the 2021 Provost Election by electronic means. Please click the following links for further information:

The election will take place on Saturday 10 April 2021. The name of the elected candidate will go to the Board for appointment on 21 April 2021, and the new Provost will take up office on 1 August 2021.
