In General

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Have you ever thought of something which could improve your course? Perhaps something went really well, but you would like to see more of it?

As you know, the Students’ Union is run by students, for students. That means we love democracy and encourage students to have their say and make positive change.

The current elections period is all about the Academic Representative Nominations – in other words, helping you to find students that will work hard to make your course the best it can be.

These people are elected by you to represent you in all things academic, so if you have any issues with your course, these are the people that will be able to help you out and make positive changes for future years.

We are currently looking for Academic Reps for all subjects, as well as Academic Presidents and Vice Presidents for the following degree areas:

  • Environmental Sciences
  • Music
  • Optoelectronics Research Centre
  • Physiotherapy
  • Gerontology
  • Politics and International Relations
  • Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology

If you are interested in running to be an Academic President then you can find information about the role here or perhaps if you are more interested in becoming an Academic Representative then all the necessary information can be found here.

Being part of academic representation is a hugely important role as it affects every student in your degree area. But more than that, it means you can make a real change to the academic lives of the students in your area, so if there are problems, you are going to be active in solving them and making it better for future years. Equally, you gain valuable experience that can be put onto your CV, to help you with your future chosen career!

If you are interested in being part of this, then you should hurry to nominate yourself as the elections close soon! All the elections information can be found here whilst you should also join the Facebook event for regular updates.
