Tanika Sibal was elected as Education Officer, on their Refresh ticket.
Brandon Tan, Henri Vickers, Jade Lin, Ailsa Schreurs, Anabelle Nshuti, Christopher Atkins, Peter Sun, Jocelyn Abbott, Isabella Keith, Taylor Heslington, Harsh Thakkar, David Harvey, Madeleine Lezon, and Yasmin Poole were all elected as General Representatives.
ANU is able to send 5 delegates to the National Union of Students National Conference. The delegates elected were Niall Cummins from Ignite, Ashish Nagesh from Reform, and Lachy Day, Tanika Sibal and Croft Sun from Refresh.
Kai Clark and Alison Wong were elected as College of Asia and the Pacific Representatives.
