Links to the 2019 Nomination forms:

Please note that some positions are available to all year levels. However, we will be using two different nomination forms for first years and older year levels

If you are in first year, and applying for a role that is also open to older year levels, please do so under the ‘First Year Co-opts’ form and not the form for older year levels.

This is to ensure that applications for first year positions are kept separate from those open to all students.
