Elections - autumn 2023
We’re looking for our next team of course representatives, as well as two school representatives to join those elected earlier this year.
All our student representatives are democratically elected by students, meaning everyone has a say in who represents their interests. It also means that elections are relevant to all students, even if you don’t want to become a rep. It’s important to participate in democracy because it will have an impact on your academic experience.
Our student representatives are at the heart of our work to make your university experience the best it can be. Becoming a student representative is the very best way to advocate for yourself and all the students on your course, and to develop CV-boosting skills at the same time.
Student reps are a central part of our representation structure, ensuring that students’ opinions are represented to the University so that improvements can be made. We have around 500 course reps – generally one for every year of every course – and a school rep for each of the six schools.
