Over the next three weeks, the student body will be electing over 400 representatives from across the university as course and department reps.
To find out more about the roles, head to our Academic Rep Elections page.
Along with representing students and making a change that can positively impact students for years to come, there are a range of benefits to being an academic rep. From a year round development plan advancing your skills and knowledge to fulfil the role and push your CV further, to a monthly recognition scheme celebrating the hard work that reps do.
There is also a tiered rewards scheme for each of the representative roles. You will have a series of opportunities to complete activities, all of which will tie in with being an engaged and high-performing representative. The rewards will vary from certificates, to merch and goodies, with the top reward being a reference for your CV and lunch with Professor Katie Normington, Senior Vice-Principal (Academic), so there’s a lot up for grabs.
The entire elections process takes place online starting with nominations opening today and closing Wednesday 10 October at 17:00.
Not sure if you want to run for a position? Nominate a friend! Not only have we moved our elections online this year but you can recommend a friend online too. All we need is your name and email, their name and email and why you think they’d be good for the role!
Even if you don't want to run for a position, it's really important that you get involved and vote for someone you feel will effectively represent your views. Voting will open on Monday 15 October at 10:00, closing on Wednesday 17 October at 16:00.
Just a reminder for returning students and academic reps for the 2017/18 period, you will need to put yourself forward for the position again if you’re interested in continuing the role!
