As a student representative you will have the unique opportunity to make positive changes to how education is delivered within the university. You will be able to gain key skills, enhance your employability and join a network of campaigners involved with the Students Union.
At the end of your post, your role will also be recorded on your HEAR (Higher Education Achievement Record), and you will get the chance to be nominated for ‘Student Rep of the Year’ in the Union and NUS Awards. Being a Student Rep, is also an approved leadership role which counts towards the prestigous Stellify Award.
Rep elections are held at the beginning of the first semester. Every course has a co-ordinator who is responsible for overseeing the student rep elections within their department. In the first few weeks of term your co-ordinator should contact you, inviting you to both stand and vote in the elections.
